Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games – Olympic torch relay begins in Fukushima as countdown to Tokyo 2020 begins

The Olympic torch relay started in Fukushima on Thursday, kicking off a four-month countdown to the summer Games in Tokyo, delayed from 2020 and the first ever organised during a global pandemic. Some 10,000 runners will take the torch across Japan's 47 prefectures, including far-flung islands, starting from the site of the 2011 quake and tsunami that killed about 20,000 people.
