Tokyo Olympics is finally underway after a 12-month delay, and the mega sporting event has given people around the world enough and more to talk about already.
From marriage proposals to hilarious reactions of athletes and coaches, the 32nd edition of the event is nowhere short on drama and excitement. Now, the latest talk of the town is team USA’s face masks.
It was on the first night of swimming finals at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics that netizens picked up on the interesting item of podium fashion from Team USA.

Take a look at some of the reactions here:
