Following the success of Rio 2016, a Refugee Olympic Team (EOR) will participate for the second time, at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

Half of the Japanese public think the 2020 Olympics will take place this summer, a survey by the Yomiuri daily newspaper showed on Monday, despite most people opposing holding the Games during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tokyo 2020 president Seiko Hashimoto is "100%" certain the Olympics will go ahead, but warned the Games "must be prepared" to proceed without spectators in the event of a coronavirus outbreak.

WITH 50 days remaining to the start of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics a book called Toon In was launched. The book uses cartoons to take readers on a journey of the Olympic Games.
