The International Olympic Committee released guidelines Thursday pertaining to Rule 50 of the Olympic Charter in order to avoid political protests at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The IOC notified athletes ahead of the games, set to be held from July 24 to Aug. 9, that they will be prohibited from taking a knee, making hand gestures with a political meaning, or wearing or holding signs or armbands on the field, on the medal stand or in the Olympic Village.
