The Tokyo Olympics may be only hitting its stride but already some heads will begin to turn towards the closing ceremony next week.
It’s been an incredible few days of action already, with the highs and lows of sporting events on full display at the Games.
Unfortunately they only come around every four years, but thankfully due to the Covid delay you won’t have to wait too long until Paris 2024.

So if things haven’t gone too well for your favourite athletes, there’s only three short years to Paris – meaning a lot of people will try to make the next Games who might have pulled out otherwise.
Here’s everything we know about the closing ceremony and how you can watch the Olympic Games wrap up in Tokyo:
When do the Games end?
The Tokyo Olympic Games will end on Sunday, August 8 after more than two weeks of competition across 33 sports and some 46 disciplines. Confusingly the Games started on Wednesday, July 21 – but the opening ceremony wasn’t held until Friday, Jul 23 so they could fit in all the events.
Some of the sports to make their first appearance at Tokyo 2020 include surfing, skateboarding, sport climbing and karate.
When is the Tokyo Olympics closing ceremony?
The closing ceremony will also take place on Sunday, August 8 at 8pm local time (12pm in the UK) and will be held without fans due to the ongoing Covid crisis in the country.
At the end of the Games, the Olympic flame will be extinguished and the Olympic torch will begin its journey around the world before eventually arriving in Paris for 2024.
Some of the last events to take place before the Games comes to an end include the men’s marathon, the women’s basketball finals and the men’s water polo final.
