Olympic flame arrives in Tokyo amidst low-key welcoming ceremony

The Olympic flame arrived in Tokyo yesterday but the public kept away from a low-key welcoming ceremony because of Corona virus fears, the day after the announcement that spectators would be banned from most of the Games events.

On a rainy morning, exactly two weeks before the opening ceremony of the biggest sporting event since the pandemic began, the flame was brought on stage in a lantern and handed to Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike.
