2.SOUNDBITE (English) Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations:
“Dear friends, I am proud to salute the world’s Olympic athletes — and I thank the people of Japan. The Olympic spirit brings out humanity’s best: Teamwork and solidarity. Talent. Tolerance. It inspires and unifies us in troubled times. We are all in mourning for those lost to the COVID-19 pandemic. Every athlete in Tokyo has overcome enormous obstacles and demonstrated great determination. If we bring that same energy to our global challenges, we can achieve anything. Peace. A clean, green, thriving planet. A better, more equal world — rooted in supporting the most vulnerable and leaving no one behind. So, let us race together to that future. The United Nations is honoured to be your teammate every step of the way. Thank you.”
