TENNIS STAR NAOMI OSAKA LIT THE OLYMPIC FLAME AS TOKYO 2020 OFFICIALLY GOT UNDER WAY – A YEAR LATER THAN PLANNED.

Friday’s opening ceremony had a more sombre tone than usual, a reminder that this is a Games taking place during the pandemic.

At the heart of the stadium stood the Olympic cauldron, a representation of the sun atop Mount Fuji. It later opened like a flower, embodying “vitality and hope”.

Earlier, the Japanese flag had entered carried by athletes, but also by healthcare workers, after which a moment of silence was held to remember those lost.
