TOKYO (Reuters) - Tokyo Olympic organisers said on Tuesday they had decided to postpone the water polo test event planned for this weekend due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on scheduling.

Organisers are seeking a suitable date in May or June for it to take place, Tokyo 2020 said in a statement.
