North Korea’s sports ministry announced on April 6, 2021, that the country will withdraw from the Tokyo Olympic Games, citing Covid-19 risks. The international sporting event, which was originally scheduled to happen in 2020, has been postponed until July 23, 2021, because of the coronavirus pandemic. News about Pyongyang’s decision to pull out of the event came just after Olympics organisers announced that international spectators would not be allowed at the Games.
