On Saturday (10 July) Tokyo police held back protesters outside the hotel where the International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach is staying in Tokyo.

A group of protesters shouted slogans demanding that the Olympics be cancelled, during a demonstration outside the hotel.

The IOC president is at the hotel for three days of quarantine after arriving in the Olympic host city.

The year-late '2020' Olympics will be held without spectators for events in and around Tokyo itself, following an increase in Covid-19 infections in the Japanese capital.

Opponents fear the Games, even without spectators, could cause a 'superspreader' event.
