It is also not to forget Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps and some more most iconic figures in the history of the Olympic Games who reached new heights here in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro city.

The final day was memorable in eight sports and thereafter spectacular closing ceremony.

International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach said, “During these last 16 days, a united Brazil entertained the world with unforgettable and emotional moments of pure happiness.”

The closing ceremony also marked the transition from Rio 2016 to Tokyo 2020 and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was seen emerging from a green pipe as if it was a Super Mario-inspired routine.
