Tokyo had been hoping to welcome spectators to events but on Thursday, July 15, Japan Prime Minister Yoshihde Suga announced a state of emergency would be extended.
Amid a growing rise in coronavirus cases, and to reduce the spread of the virus, the state of emergency has been extended through until August 22 having originally come into place on July 12.
As a result, Japan's Olympics Minister Tamayo Marukawa confirmed there would be no fans present, albeit a small number of events being held elsewhere from Tokyo and the surrounding area will see limited spectators.
Fear not though as Eurosport has you covered for all the live coverage and the big, breaking news stories throughout the Games.

When do the Tokyo 2020 Olympics start?

The opening ceremony will take place on Friday, July 23, starting at 20:00 local time.
Japan is eight hours ahead of British Summer Time, meaning proceedings will begin at 12:00 in the UK.
The likes of archery, equestrian, rowing and shooting get underway the same day as the opening ceremony but the majority of sports begin the day after.
However, not all sports start after the opening ceremony with the football, baseball and softball schedules starting two days earlier on Wednesday, July 21.
