While the Games are being held with multiple restrictions due to the pandemic, some Japanese residents are still protesting against the event, citing cost overruns and a COVID-19 surge.
Sputnik is live from outside Tokyo's Ariake Tennis Park, where protests against the Olympic Games as the men's singles finals, as well as the mixed and women's doubles finals are being held.
In the meantime, in the final tennis matches, Alexander Zverev (Germany) will be clashing with Karen Khachanov (Russia), while Russians Elena Vesnina and Aslan Karatsev will face off against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Andrey Rublev for the mixed doubles gold medal.
