After an uncertain start to the postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympics, which saw fears rise that the Games would be cancelled after Japan announced a state of emergency because of soaring Covid cases in the country, the event is now in full swing.
More than 11,000 athletes are competing at Tokyo 2020 across 33 sports and Team GB kicked off the first full week of the Games in style today with three gold medal wins in just five hours on Monday July 26.
The postponed 2020 event began with a spectacular opening ceremony on Friday July 23, but when do the Games draw to a close this year?
When do the Olympics end?
The Tokyo 2020 Olympics will end on Sunday, August 8.
The closing ceremony will take place at the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo and will begin at 8pm local time. The closing ceremony will air in the UK at midday (GMT), but which channel you will be able to watch the event on is yet to be announced.
On the concept of Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games Closing Ceremony the official Olympics website says:
‘Even if we cannot be together, we can share the same moment, and that is something that we will never forget. It is this salient message which we believe will create a Closing Ceremony that will open the door to a brighter future.
‘We hope that this ceremony may be a moment for each and every one of us to think about what the future holds.’
