Things are going from bad to worse in Japan with the national broadcaster reporting there have been sightings of Godzilla surfacing from Tokyo Bay.

Godzilla will be the fifth disaster to strike the country today after a magnitude 4.5 earthquake, multiple tornadoes, a volcano eruption in Kyushu and a super typhoon.

World Rugby has released a statement saying Godzilla may result in more games being cancelled.

More to come.
