TOKYO (Reuters) - Tokyo 2020 organising committee Vice-president Toshiaki Endo said on Thursday that a new president must be chosen as swiftly as possible, while observing due process.
Endo, speaking at the start of a board meeting, also said it had been "hugely damaging" to lose their president five months before the summer Games open. Former president Yoshiro Mori resigned last week after stirring up a furore with sexist remarks.
