Tokyo Olympics: Opening Ceremony Highlights

Tokyo's first Olympic Games since 1964 began with an opening ceremony that struck a more somber tone than nearly any other before it. U.S. first lady Jill Biden was among the less than 1,000 spectators on hand. Protests against the Games outside the Olympic Stadium marred the pomp and circumstances of the ceremony. Check out highlights from the spectacle including the return of Tonga's shirtless flag-bearer, a globe of drones and Naomi Osaka's cauldron-lighting.
