    Default TOKYO will host 2020 Summer Olympic Games

    Olympics 2020 : Tokyo wins race to host Games

    7 September 2013 Last updated at 22:11 GMT

    Tokyo has been chosen to host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games ahead of Istanbul and Madrid.

    The Japanese capital won a final round of voting by International Olympic Committee (IOC) members in Buenos Aires to beat Istanbul by 60 votes to 36.

    Madrid had earlier been eliminated in a first-round ballot.

    The announcement was met with jubilant scenes in Japan, as Tokyo prepares to host the event for the first time since 1964.

    When IOC president Jacques Rogge - who will retire after 12 years in the role on Tuesday - announced the winning city, the Tokyo delegation jumped to their feet in celebration and waved the Japan flag.

    A number of them were overcome with emotion and wept, following two years of intense lobbying.
    "I would like to thank everyone in the Olympic movement and we will host a wonderful Olympic Games," a delighted Prime Minster Shinzo Abe said.
