Tokyo 2020: The Olympic DJs playing in empty stadiums

Fans may have been banned from attending the Olympic Games in Tokyo due to the Covid-19 pandemic – but that doesn’t mean the venues are completely silent.

The BBC’s Aaron Akinyemi met three DJs in Tokyo who gave an insight into how they create playlists to motivate athletes in the absence of a crowd’s energy.
