The celebration has always been an integral part of any sporting event, but when it comes to the Olympics, celebration hardly comes to an end. Before the pandemic outbreak in the world, the citizens of every nation used to come together to cheer and encourage their champions but the pandemic forced the people to stay back home.
But never the less the celebration by the family, friends and their country people remained as enthusiastic as earlier. Due to the covid protocols and strict restrictions, in the Tokyo Olympics, 2020 spectators are not allowed which has restricted the family, friends, and loved ones to fill the stand cheering when their champions win the medal for their respective nations.
Let us see how netizens react to the celebration made by the people after the win of their country athletes.
