The IOC has unanimously approved a recommendation to award the 2024 and 2028 Olympic Games at the same time.

Paris is favourite for the 2024 Games ahead of Los Angeles, but the loser could get the 2028 Olympics.

The two cities are the only ones left in the race for 2024 after Budapest, Hamburg and Rome withdrew.

IOC president Thomas Bach said the governing body’s board had “unanimously approved” the decision.
