The continued funding of British sport after the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics has entered “uncharted territory”, says UK Sport chair Dame Katherine Grainger.

However, Grainger hopes the government will extend their “incredible support” of athletes until next summer.

She says it is a “new headache” but is confident the government will “understand the challenges”.
