Olympic flame lit at empty ceremony in Japan

A plane carrying the Olympic flame has arrived at Japan’s Matsushima defence force base.

While there were many spectators to welcome the plane from Athens, the Olympic cauldron was lit in a small ceremony without a crowd, amid coronavirus fears.

Three-time Olympic gold medallists, Judo champion, Tadahiro Nomura and wrestler Saori Yoshida lit the cauldron together.

Organisers say at this stage, the Games will still go on.
