TOKYO (Reuters) - Tokyo Olympics organisers aim to find a new president as soon as possible, organising committee chief executive Toshiro Muto said on Friday.

Organisers will set up a committee to find a replacement for Yoshiro Mori, Muto told a news conference.

Mori stepped down amid uproar over sexist remarks he made.
