Good for him! Don't reckon he'll be going back home though.....

@Kaermashita I too hope he'll be able to stay.

But... If he refuses to leave he'll get deported, or locked up for a long time then deported. Japan has no feelings or compassion towards those who seek refuge.

Japan will not let him stay and if they do,it will be after a veeeery looooong fight involving lawyers,human rights activists etc..and he'll only get like a 2 month provisional/temporary permit to stay,maybe renewable for a month or two after another loooong and exhausting fight,then maybe even locked up in between and finally deported.

This is a great story. Wasn't expecting to read one of those here. Thanks Reuters.

Congratulations to him! By the way, why isn’t the medal count shown for the Paralympics? I’m sure we want to know the medal count.

He will end up in Paris is my guess-not Japan...

I can help you there with the medal count. Have you tried "www.google.com"? You are going to find it very useful.
