Tokyo 2020 U-turn allows social media teams to show athletes taking the knee

International Olympic Committee and Tokyo 2020 organisers have performed a U-turn over their stance to stop their social media teams from posting pictures of athletes taking the knee. The decision comes after the Guardian revealed they had issued a diktat against showing such images. On Thursday morning on Twitter the @Olympics account tweeted a picture of Lucy Bronze taking a knee – the same photo the Guardian had used in its original story.
