Johanna Konta says it is ‘heart-breaking’ to miss out on representing Great Britain at the Olympics

Johanna Konta has withdrawn from the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games after testing positive for Covid-19.

Konta said: “As some of you may know, I was unable to compete at Wimbledon this year after a member of my team tested positive for Covid-19. Unfortunately, whilst self-isolating, I also developed symptoms and subsequently tested positive for the virus.

“As a result, I have been unable to train for the last two weeks and sadly, this has put my body in a situation where I am unable to ask it to be fully ready in time for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

“This is a heart-breaking reality for me, as representing Team GB at the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016 is one of my most treasured memories from my career.

“I’ll be doing my best to get myself back to full health and fitness and ready to be competing again soon. During this time, I’ll also be glued to my TV cheering on my fellow Team GB athletes competing in Tokyo and hope you will all join me.”
