"Seeing the atmosphere, the way the stadiums were packed, the amount of time (that) is invested when the British and Irish Lions do come over, it's incredible.

It's a team I want to be a part of and play in those three Tests.

"The Toulouse three-quarter, who won an Olympic Sevens bronze medal in 2016, was forced to choose between featuring at next year's Tokyo Games, which have been rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic or facing Warren Gatland's men.

Being a part of the Olympics in 2016 and experiencing that was incredible," he said.

The next game by Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions, Death Stranding, will be launching before 2019, the developer has teased.

Reported by IGN, Kojima told fans at Tokyo Games Show this past weekend that his new game will be out before the 2020 Olympics.

"To go a little further, there is a movie called Akira, and it will be out before the year in which Akira is set."

Akira is a Japanese animated film set in a futuristic vision of Tokyo, Japan during 2019, which eerily predicted that Tokyo would host the 2020 Olympic Games way back in 1988.

Kojima is clearly a big fan, choosing this as the closest landmark for the release of Death Stranding.

During Sony s Tokyo Games Show press conference last week, Kojima confirmed that Death Stranding will be an open-world action game with online elements.

The pressure on India’s star athlete, Hima Das, to attend government and private functions across the country is severely affecting her training, according to Athletics Federation of India (AFI) president Adille Sumariwalla.Clarifying that the Junior World Champion from Assam wasn’t to be blamed for taking frequent breaks from the ongoing pre-Olympic national camp in Thiruvananthapuram, the AFI chief said: “Sometimes there is pressure from the highest sources and officials (to attend functions).

The AFI is finding it increasingly difficult, we want to protect athletes.

One of the reasons why we send athletes overseas for training is to keep them away from all these events.”Over the last fortnight, Hima has been away from the camp, attending events in three cities.November 30: Khelo India Youth Games launch at Guwahati, where she shared the stage with the Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju and Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal.December 5: India Today Conclave in Kolkata.December 13: YPO South Asia Regional Conference in New Delhi, an event that also had table tennis star Manika Batra and Minister Rijiju.The AFI president said the public appearances of elite athletes needed to be planned better and well in advance.

“If we know in advance, we have no problem because we understand that an athlete has to do certain things.

If they are getting paid and they have to devote ‘X’ number of days, the schedule needs to be in place in advance.

I am very clear about that,” he said.Sumariwalla added that Hima’s training would have been hampered further had he not refused at least two other requests of her presence at events.“I am saying athletes must give back and must be a source of inspiration for youngsters, especially somebody like Hima who is a youth icon.

For any Olympian, representing your nation on the world stage is a heart-pumping and humbling experience.

But few will find more reason to be excited than Margret Rumat Rumar Hassan.

Sat in the dark changing rooms of the Maracanã stadium, Hassan can hear the chanting of hundreds of thousands of fans above her.

She s going to head out onto the track and compete against some of the very best athletes from around the world.

With the hopes of 11 million people resting on her shoulders, she is set to become the first ever runner from South Sudan to make it to the Olympic games.

Just 18-years- old, she has fought against all the odds to reach the highest echelons of athletics and compete in the most prestigious of sporting events.

When we heard the rumor that Microsoft had not one, but two new consoles to talk about at its E3 2016 keynote, we were skeptical.

And yet, on June 13, that's exactly what happened when Xbox Chief Phil Spencer unveiled both the Xbox One S and Project Scorpio.

And while Microsoft used its stage time to talk about new hardware, Sony decided instead to focus on software.

But that might be because Sony was saving its juiciest announcements for September's Tokyo Game Show TGS .

A new report from The Wall Street Journal claims that Sony has both a PlayStation Slim and PlayStation Neo ready to be shown off at TGS on September 15, 2016.

The report, written by WSJ's Tokyo technology reporter Takashi Mochizuki, contains an interview with Macquarie Securities analyst Damian Thong, who says that Sony could choose the biggest videogame show in Asia to pull back the curtain on the two new systems.

For a moment, Japan's prime minister was recognizable around the world.

Shinzo Abe was dressed as Super Mario, Japan's biggest cultural export.

He popped up out of a green pipe in the middle of Rio de Janeiro's Maracana Stadium representing his country, where the next Olympic Games will take place.

He quickly shed the costume to reveal his usual attire: a dark suit.

A presentation heavy on computer holograms followed, with the 61-year-old awkwardly holding a big red ball and waving a plumber's hat.

The reaction on Twitter was predictably enthusiastic.It was a nice plug for video-game maker Nintendo Co., the creator of the franchise that has made the Mario franchise, Zelda and other games recognized around the world.

Engineers in Tokyo are attempting to build a flying car that will help light the Olympic cauldron in 2020.

And even though they still have a few years, it s a race against time to achieve what so many other flying car designers have failed to do: Build a safe and reliable flying machine that can handle both the skies and the roads.

The engineering group in Tokyo, called the Cart!vator, is working night and day to get their prototype fully functional.

The flying car will have vertical take off and landing capabilities VTOL and the ability to drive on paved surfaces.

The group, founded by Tsubasa Nakamura, hopes that after the Olympic Games they can finally turn us all into George and Jane Jetsons.

If technological innovation is achieved in the battery performance and other fields, the vehicle could be commercialized in the future, Masafumi Miwa, an engineer working with the group, told Asahi Shimbun.

They marked the first Games to be postponed in history.

The Tokyo Games Show 2017 doesn’t start for a couple more days but Sony traditionally previews what it will have on exhibit beforehand.

The hour-long press conference, held earlier today, was light on specifics with Sony preferring to show rather than tell.

Left Alive is a post-apocalyptic shooter that will be landing on PS4 and PC next year.

It is being developed by Square Enix and has some veteran designers at the helm.

Armored Core director Toshifumi Nabeshima, Metal Gear character designer Yoji Shinkawa and Mobile Suit Gundam 00 mech designer Takayuki Yanas are teaming up for this one.

This 2006 classic saw a “remaster” for the PS3 in 2011 but other than adding HD support and freshening the graphics a touch, it was the same game.
