The IOC say they have  no ‘Plan B’ in place for February’s Winter Olympics, despite growing tensions on the Korean peninsula.

The Games are set to be held in the South Korean city of Pyeongchang, but relations between the United Nations and Kim Jong-un’s regime are increasingly fraught over the North’s nuclear capabilities.

Despite the volatile situation, IOC president Thomas Bach said there was no back-up option.

“Speaking now about different scenarios for the Games would send the wrong message,” he said.

“It would be a message against our own belief in peace and diplomacy and would undermine the efforts of those who are working towards a diplomatic solution so that peace will prevail. We will follow developments closely and keep promoting our position.”
