Inside the Games. By Michael Pavitt.

Tokyo 2020 chief executive Toshiro Muto has said the rescheduled Olympics will be a "simplified Games" with the official claiming 200 ideas are being considered on how to achieve this and reduce costs.

Tokyo 2020 presented to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board virtually today, with the meeting billed as outlining its positioning, principles for re-planning, and a roadmap to the Games in 2021.

"The Games will not be a grand splendour but will be a simplified Games," said Muto said in a press conference following the meeting.

"In order to simplify the Games, we need to review and understand International Federations, National Olympic Committees, broadcasters and partners.

"These stakeholders must act in unison to make sure of a simplified Games."

While saying Tokyo 2020 had produced more than 200 ideas to simplify the Games, Muto said organisers had not reached a stage where they had "concrete ideas."
