    The Olympic flame has arrived by plane at Japan's Matsushima defence force base

    The Olympic flame has arrived by plane 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 Tokyo Games will still go on.
