Indonesian supporters are undeterred by heavy showers on Tuesday (28/8/2018) from watching the men's beach volleyball final of the 2018 Asian Games at the Beach Volleyball court of Jakabaring Sports City in Palembang, South Sumatra. Beach volleyball is one of the sports that always draws large crowds.

Visitors to the Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) sports complex in Jakarta were full of enthusiasm on Tuesday (28/8/2018). They came in droves not only to watch the Indonesian shuttlers in the badminton finals, but also to immerse themselves in the Asian Games spirit.

Nearing noon, the sun was scorching over the GBK Stadium, where the badminton finals were held, but that did not prevent spectators from gathering outside the stadium to watch the men’s singles final between Indonesia’s Jonatan Christie and Chou Tien-Chen from Chinese Taipei on a big screen. The hot asphalt below them and the scorching sun above did not dissuade them from shouting their hearts out every time Jojo, as Jonatan is affectionately called, scored a point.
