Tokyo 2020: Watch remote control bus deliver ball ‘through the posts’ for rugby sevens at Olympics

THE Olympic Games are motoring on – and so was the ball for day three’s rugby sevens.

In true Tokyo style, the ball was delivered on a remote controlled BUS for the opener between Fiji and Japan.

But that wasn’t all – a robotic hand then delivered it ‘through the posts’ and onto the field of play.

And the world of social media seemed to love the dynamic entrance.

Lowri Green wanted the bus ‘added to my Christmas wishlist’, while Kate Neilan posted on Twitter: “If you loved the little car, get a load of the rugby bus!”

It’s of course not the first time we have seen a remote controlled vehicle involved in a major sporting event.

There was a rainbow car used to deliver the football onto the pitch for some of the Euro 2020 games – to which Ms Neilan was referring to.

After a stunning opening ceremony, the whole of Europe was desperate to see the tournament kick off after a year’s delay.

But they were then forced to wait as the mini motor made its way to the centre circle for the opener between Turkey and Italy.

The car received a rainbow paint job ahead of the final between England and Italy to promote inclusion and diversity.


The rainbow flag is widely known as a symbol for the LGBTQ+ community.

Fans on social media were delighted to see the car return, with one tweeting: “Love the rainbow tiny car so much.”

While another wrote: “I’m cheering for the teeny tiny little rainbow car with the football.”

And one person tweeted: “Love to see a tiny car drive on to a football pitch painted with rainbows.”

But now the eyes of the world will be on Japan’s little bus.
