The Tokyo 2020 Olympic torch relay ended in the Japanese capital on Friday in a closed-door ceremony due to the Covid-19 epidemic, hours before it will be used to light the cauldron during the opening ceremony at the Olympic Stadium.

Kabuki theater actor Kankuro Nakamura was the last torchbearer and in charge of the symbolic lighting of a small cauldron, as done so in other ceremonies that have taken place throughout the torch's journey across the country.EFE
