Sport in 2021: Olympics, World Cups and Euros

With the start of 2021 comes a feast of sport to look forward to. Coronavirus caused widespread cancellations last year but that means more high-profile sports events are in the diary.

The Olympic Games in Tokyo (23 July-8 August) will be a summer blockbuster, there’s Euro 2020 across European cities in June and a home rugby league World Cup in autumn.
