The Tokyo Olympics are finally upon us and the city that has been waiting a year longer than planned to host the Games is finally receiving the world’s sports stars.

The build-up was far from straightforward, with the coronavirus pandemic not only forcing last year’s Games to be postponed but also threatening their prospects of going ahead this year, too.

Thankfully, the show goes on, despite the fact that the majority of venues will be unable to welcome fans because of reimposed restrictions.

In all, there will be medals up for grabs in 33 different sports across 42 venues.

Here’s all you need to know about when and where they’ll be won…
