Live from Tokyo 2020: S. Korea Wins Men's Team Gold in Archery, Gam Updated: 2021-07-26 17:03:14 KST

It's the first Monday of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, which are taking place under heavy restrictions after a year's delay because of the coronavirus pandemic - after a weekend full of shocks and surprises.
Athletes have been giving their absolute best despite the pandemic, but the rising number of Covid-19 cases in Tokyo as well as in the Olympic Village still do remain a concern.
Let's go live to Philip Crowther of AP International. He's by the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo.

I want to begin with the South Korean men's team gold in archery.
It wasn't an easy game today as the archers tried to figure out an inconsistent wind on the eve of a possible typhoon moving into that region, I hear. Tell us about that golden match.

The Games are happening as the organizers, athletes, volunteers, and spectators navigate through unchartered territory, the Covid-19 pandemic, that is. How have the first three days of game competitions been like? (Any Covid outbreaks today's covid outbreaks among athletes protocol after confirmed cases etc)

It looks like TV ratings in Japan are on the increase with the host nation beginning to enjoy Olympic success. But the jury is still out on whether public attitudes to the Games are warming as Covid-19 cases linked to the event continue to rise. What are you feeling on the ground?

Millions of Japanese watched the Olympics opening ceremony and many are cheering on their athletes. Is Japan's Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga getting any boost to his soggy support ahead of an election this year?

Philip Crowther of AP International live for us from the Tokyo Olympic Stadium tonight. Thanks, Philip for that coverage.
