Olympics 2020: Tokyo wins race to host Games

Tokyo has been chosen to host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games ahead of Istanbul and Madrid.

 

The Japanese capital won a majority of second-round votes from International Olympic Committee (IOC) members in Buenos Aires to beat Istanbul.

Madrid had earlier been eliminated in a first round of voting.

The announcement was met with jubilant scenes in Japan, as Tokyo prepares to host the event for the first time since 1964.
