Tokyo 2020 Olympics chief Yoshiro Mori said he will resign due to the fallout after sexist remarks he made at a meeting were leaked to the public.

Mori expressed his "deepest apologies" on Friday and said he would hand in his resignation by the end of the day, acknowledging that his "inappropriate statement has caused a lot of chaos."

"The important thing is that the Olympic Games are held in July," Mori said. "If I am going to be a distraction to organizing the Games by being in my position, I think that is a situation we should avoid."

The Olympics started to go to hell many years ago, 1936 or earlier, when politics first reared their ugly head. Then when money became more heavily involved it only got that much worse. But it's not a new thing.
