This summer sees the return of the XXXI Olympiad, due to be held in Rio de Janeiro and we will be showing the high priority events shown across the BBC, provided by BBC Sports for free.
The BBC will bring audiences comprehensive coverage of this year’s Summer Olympics with more than 3,000 hours of live sporting action from Rio 2016.
Following its award-winning coverage of London 2012, which saw over 90 per cent of the UK population watch its output, the BBC will once again be right at the heart of the world’s biggest sporting spectacle, delivering blanket coverage from the 17 days of action across TV, radio, online and digital.
You can watch the build up to the event from 8:30pm on Friday 5 August and watch the repeat of the opening ceremony, 9:15am on Saturday 6 August. Full coverage will continue on from here.
