Globally-acclaimed film-maker Zhang Yimou, who directed the 2008 Olympics opening ceremony, is once again in charge of putting on the ceremony, but says this show will be “different and unique”.

The show will feature around 4,000 performers but is expected to be scaled back in comparison to the incredible 2008 show, because of the cold weather and pandemic. Organisers have yet to announce who will light the Olympic torch.
