The President of the Republic and the whole of his Government are proud of the IOC’s decision to entrust the organisation of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games to Paris and to France. France "will bear with pride the Olympic values of solidarity, excellence, friendship and respect," Emmanuel Macron proclaimed.
