Political turmoil in France won't affect Paris Games, says IOC head


 , Updated 17:24, 10-Jun-2024

Current political upheaval in France won't affect preparations for the Olympic Summer Games, IOC President Thomas Bach said on Monday after President Emmanuel Macron shocked France with his call for new parliamentary elections.

"France is used to holding elections, they will do it one more time," Bach said during a Paris 2024 run-up event in Paris, adding that whatever the outcome, political leaders will support the Olympics.
