@Ossan. I hope Brazil will get some coverage closer to its time, but this is, after all, Japan Today. I'm sure there'll be at least a trickle of Tokyo Olympics news for the next seven years.

Keep a Zippo lighter handy, in case it goes out, just as it happened in Russia!

Caption: Everything is under control. I have the torch to prove it!

Supreme Advisor Abe is probably the least sporty person to have ever held an olympic torch - he comes across as someone who hasn't played any form of sport all his life!

An entertaining pastime at the moment is to see how often the NHK evening news mentions the Tokyo olympics. Since the announcement of Tokyo's success they have managed to mention it nearly every day. Naturally, Rio barely gets a mention.
