The International Olympic Committee announced today that Paris will host the 2024 Summer Olympics while Los Angleles has been awarded the 2028 games.

Paris and Los Angeles had been the only two candidates for the 2024 Games after Hamburg, Rome and Budapest withdrew from the race.

The French capital, which had fallen short with bids for 2008 and 2012, will mark 100 years since it was last held in the French capital.

Los Angeles hosted the games in 1932 and 1984 while the French Capital last hosted the games 100 years ago.
