Coverage of the opening ceremony will be broadcast on NBC on Friday at 8 p.m. ET.

Kim Yo Jong shook hands with Moon at the beginning of the ceremony.

The Russians had appealed their exclusion from the Games by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) over the doping scandal from the 2014 Sochi Games.

It is a rare show of warmth and diplomacy between the warring nations.
