The 2022 Asian Games, that were set to take place in Hangzhou, China in September have been postponed indefinitely.
The Olympic Council of Asia made the announcement on Friday but did not provide an exact reason for the delay.
But the decision comes amid China's efforts to tackle its largest outbreak of COVID-19 since the early days of the pandemic.
The city of Hangzhou is less than 200 kilometers from Shanghai, which has recently been under a weeks-long lockdown.
