The head of the Tokyo Olympics 2020, Yoshiro Mori resigned today over sexist comments against women he made earlier this month.
Mori, a former Prime Minister, had initially apologized but refused to step down.

This drew criticism from sponsors, and led to an online petition that drew more than 1.5 lakh signatures.

After a wave of criticism, Mori apologized and retracted his remarks, acknowledging they were inappropriate and against the Olympic spirit.


The Tokyo Olympics were postponed from last year due to the Coronavirus pandemic. They are currently scheduled for July, followed by the Paralympics a month later.
