International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach will visit Japan to attend the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games opening ceremony.
He is expected to arrive in Japan on August 23.
The Tokyo Paralympics will take place generally without spectators, organisers said on Monday, as the government was set to prolong COVID-19 emergency measures in the capital and other regions that will run through the Games.
The Paralympic competitions – to be held from August. 24 to September 5 – include swimming, table tennis, wheelchair fencing and basketball, with over 4,000 athletes with various impairments set to participate.
