Most networks led with reports that the International Olympic Committee has decided to ban Russian athletes from participating in the Pyeongchang Olympics in February 2018 due to allegations of state-sponsored doping at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. TBS gave top play to a report on the alleged assault by sumo grand champion Harumafuji.


Major front-page items in national papers included Shogi master Habu’s historic achievement in becoming the first-ever professional shogi player to win a seventh lifetime title, an informal GOJ decision to procure new types of cruise missiles, and a GOJ plan to establish a 10-day national holiday in late April through early May in 2019 to celebrate Crown Prince Naruhito’s accession to the throne.
