- Story Text: Olympic team members left Tokyo on Monday (August 9), after the closing ceremony capped off an unprecedented Olympic Games.
About a dozen Tokyo 2020 staff members were standing in front of the departure gates at Tokyo's Haneda airport, holding message cards and waving goodbye.
Held without spectators, the Olympics fell short of the triumph and financial blockbuster Japan had sought. Instead, the host nation is saddled with a $15 billion bill, double what it initially expected, and with no tourist boom to offset it.
Tokyo Olympics organisers reported on Monday 28 new Games-related COVID-19 cases, bringing the total since July 1 to 458 cases. The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games concluded on Sunday (August 8), while the Paralympics are slated to start August 24.
