Olympic organizers are being accused of lying about extreme conditions

The extreme conditions that have seen stars including Novak Djokovic struggle at the Olympics are set to take another turn when a storm initially forecast as a typhoon hits Japan – leading to accusations of a lack of transparency.

Rowing, archery and surfing events have already been moved ahead of the storm, which is the latest natural interruption to a showpiece that has pushed athletes beyond their limits in trying to exert themselves against the best in the world amid sweltering conditions.

Despite reports that intense rain, thunderstorms and gusty winds will batter Olympic venues, organizers have denied there is cause for alarm, with Tokyo 2020 spokesperson Masa Takaya telling the BBC that people "shouldn't be too worried" but should "maintain precautions".

Wind and rain were the least of the risks concerning Russia's Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, the French Open finalist who took to an air tube during a tennis medical timeout and was frustrated by a lack of ice.
