The Tokyo 2020 Olympics is officially underway and day 2 sees a schedule jam-packed with events.

Among the big stories on Sunday, Japan’s Naomi Osaka will compete against China’s Zheng Saisai while Andy Murray will step on to court in the men’s tennis single against Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime. Team GB’s Jade Jones will also be competing in Taekwondo, attempting to become to first British woman to win gold medals at three Games.
