Olympic torch relay finishes its first day in Fukushima

FUKUSHIMA, March 25 (Reuters) - A runner carrying the Olympic torch completed the first day of the relay in Fukushima, Japan, on Thursday, an event that was postponed for a year due to the global pandemic.

With waves, smiles and high fives - but no cheers - the Olympic torch relay set off on Thursday, beginning a four-month countdown to the postponed 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo, the first ever organised during a deadly pandemic. (Reporting by Kiyoshi Takenaka; Editing by Toby Chopra)
