"Today it's a very symbolic step for Paris 2024," said Tony Estanguet, president of the games' organizing committee. "Those rings are probably the most efficient message to tell that it will be a very important location of the games."

"We are ready, we are looking forward to welcoming you."

The Paris Olympics start on July 26 and run for 17 days.
