RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - The conclusion of the World Health Organization's emergency committee that there is a very low risk of further international spread of Zika virus as result of the Olympics is "very positive" for the games, International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said on Tuesday.

The comments were made to reporters during a visit to the Olympic Park in Rio de Janeiro.
