The Olympic Games are one of the most-watched television events in the world and this summer the highly-anticipated games are being held in Tokyo.
After concerns in January that coronavirus outbreaks in Japan might postpone the Games further, they are finally going ahead.
The Tokyo Games were originally scheduled for summer 2020 and made history when they were postponed in March last year due to the pandemic.

Previously the Olympics have only ever been postponed or cancelled due to World Wars.
With no live spectators allowed, Tokyo will be a different but memorable event in sporting history.
An audience of 3.5billion people tuned in from across the world to both the 2012 Games in London and the 2016 Games in Rio.
What time will the Tokyo Olympics be on in the UK?
Tokyo is eight hours ahead of the UK meaning much of the schedule will take place during the night.
Most events will take place between 12am and 3pm BST, with some variation, meaning that avid fans will have to miss out on some sleep to catch all of the games.
The opening ceremony will be held at 8pm in Japan on July 23 at Japan National Stadium. This means in the UK, it will start at 12pm and is expected to run until 4pm.
