Sweden and Canada have asked Olympic organisers to move what is expected to be a hotly-contested women's gold-medal soccer match on Friday at Tokyo's Olympic Stadium to later in the day to avoid the sweltering heat of the Japanese summer. "I myself have been in contact with (soccer governing body) FIFA today and written to them, so that's about where the situation is today," Marika Domanski Lyfors, the head of Sweden's women's team, told reporters. The Swedish Football Association (SvFF) said it had also written to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) together with Canada to see if the game could be moved.
