Tokyo Olympics 2021 closing ceremony: performers, times, TV, stream and how to watch

The closing ceremony, implemented since the first modern Olympics in Athens in 1896, is a celebration that takes place to mark the end of the current Games and the beginning of the next ones, in this case Paris 2024.

Each closing ceremony has its own theme set around a certain idea. This year, the International Olympic Commmittee (IOC) has chosen “Worlds we share” as its theme. Organizers say it truly “reflects the Olympic spirit and expresses the idea that each of us inhabits their own world”.
