The much anticipated and awaited Tokyo Olympics will finally commence from July 23 after The Games were postponed by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The opening ceremony will be held on 23rs July while major sporting activities will commence from July 24.

Due to a sudden rise in COVID cases in Tokyo, the authorities decided to stage the megaevent behind close doors, meaning, no spectators will be allowed. But the fans could relax at home and enjoy the coverage.

Olympic enthusiasts in UK can watch the fortnight long carnival on BBC or Eurosport. As usual, NBCUniversal are the official broadcasters for the Tokyo Olympics while the Australian fans could see the live coverage of Olympics on the Seven Network.
