Tokyo--More than a year after they were set to begin — and 17 days after their delayed start — the Tokyo Olympics drew to an end on Sunday, with the closing ceremony under way here at Olympic Stadium.
Why it matters: Although Covid-19 delayed the Games and left an indelible mark, Organizers hope the Games have left a legacy beyond the disease.
Sunday's ceremony began with the raising of the Japanese flag and a flag parade featuring a single flag bearer from each country, followed by the entrance of some additional athletes.
The ceremony has just begun. Check back for updates.
