FORECASTING 2021: Sebastian Coe - #TheAgenda with Stephen Cole
The Agenda • 1m 55s
In 2020 most of the world's biggest sporting events were called off - the Tokyo Olympics and the European Football Championships to name but two. Sporting stars have returned to some kind of action, but is it too early for fans to dust off their foam fingers?
Sebastian Coe is President of World Athletics. When The Agenda’s Stephen Cole asked him whether he agreed with the International Olympic Committee’s longest serving member saying that Tokyo-bound athletes should be among the first to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, Seb Coe said they may be hesitant to do so:
“It is really important that the vaccine goes to people that are vulnerable - frontline services...emergency services. I think the athletes recognize that.
“If the athletes do have access to the vaccine, they should take it. But I think most athletes would be a little nervous about elbowing their way in front of vulnerable people or health service workers in all our communities.”
