Tokyo's governor has warned that the bill for the city's 2020 Games could yet spiral out of control despite exhaustive efforts to rein in runaway costs.

Governor Yuriko Koike said there was still a danger of costs reaching an eye-watering 3 trillion yen ($26 billion) - four times more than initially planned - unless Games organizers keep a tight rein on the purse strings. "We still haven't got a final figure for how much it will cost," she told AFP.
