Photos & Video From Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony

 French President Emmanuel Macron, whose country will host the next Summer Games in 2024, is at the Opening Ceremony.

Apart from English, all announcements at the ceremony are being made in Japanese and French to denote the languages of the current country hosting the Olympics and the next country to do so.

Macron was also seen interacting with the US first lady Jill Biden prior to

the ceremony.

As athletes from different countries parade at the Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony, some contingents are practicing social distancing while others are not. Ukraine and UAE's representing athletes walked at distance from each other, while Argentina came dancing and cheering together on the floor.

Ahead of the opening ceremony's start, protesters took to the streets of Tokyo to voice their opposition to the staging of the Olympics in Japan. Positive Covid-19 cases are on the rise in Japan and that has ensured many events will take place without spectators in attendance. Protesters marched down some of the capital city's busiest streets with banners to make their feelings known about the International Olympic Committee and Tokyo 2020 organizers' decision to host the Games given the pandemic. The 2020 Tokyo Olympics has already been delayed by a year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
