Olympics-Japanese gymnast Uchimura test positive for COVID-19 ahead of key meet

TOKYO, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Japanese gymnast Kohei Uchimura has tested positive for COVID-19 ten days before he was due to take part in an international meet seen as a major test of Tokyo’s capacity to hold events ahead of next year’s Olympics, organisers announced on Thursday.

Organisers said it was unclear whether Uchimura, who is a three-time Olympic gold medallist, will be pulling out of the Nov. 8 meet that will also feature athletes from China, Russia and the United States. (Reporting by Jack Tarrant; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
