A sumo grand champion performs ring-entering ceremony in Japan

A sumo grand champion, or Yokozuna, has performed a ring-entering ceremony at a UNESCO World Heritage site in Japan’s ancient capital of Kyoto.

The event was held at Kamigamo Shrine on Sunday.

Yokozuna Kisenosato performed the ritual in the unryu-style. Spectators cheered as he stamped the ground.

Kisenosato is the first Japanese born and bred sumo grand champion in nearly two decades.
