The Tokyo Olympics are now on! You can obviously watch them live on television. But it is also possible to follow them in streaming. And this for free. We explain to you.
Will France manage to collect a decent harvest of medals at the Tokyo Olympics? We will soon be able to find out since the opening ceremony of the 2021 Olympic Games is taking place this Friday. What to start hostilities! Note that some collective events have already started like football and softball. Led by Thauvin and Gignac, the Blues were however devastated 4-1 by Mexico in their first match. Hopefully the rest of the competition will be more positive for the French delegation.
Anyway, be aware that it is possible to follow the competition live on television on the channels of the France Televisions group and on Eurosport. But if you don’t have a TV, you can also watch the different events for free in streaming.
