TOKYO (Reuters) - International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach said on Monday it was impossible now to have a sound figure about additional costs related to the postponement of the Tokyo Games.

Bach is visiting Tokyo for the first time since he and former prime minister Shinzo Abe decided in March to postpone the 2020 Games to next year.
