ATHENS (Reuters) -Greece's south Aegean islands were marked dark red on the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control's COVID-19 map on Thursday after a rise in infections, meaning all but essential travel to and from the region is discouraged. The cluster of 13 islands includes Greece's most popular destinations for foreign tourists - Mykonos, Santorini and Rhodes - which, combined, draw millions of people every summer.

Discovery, parent of pay-TV channel Eurosport, has partnered with national public broadcasters to show the Games but restrictions have prevented viewers from watching all live sport on free channels, as they were able to in the last two summer Olympics.
