The journey of the Olympic flame in Switzerland

The Olympic Flame made a symbolic appearance in Switzerland before making its way to Brazil for the Olympic Torch Relay ahead of the Olympic Games Rio 2016, the first Games to be held in South America.

The flame began the day in Geneva, where it was presented at the United Nations headquarters in a ceremony attended by International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Following the presentation at the Palais des Nations, the flame made its way to The Olympic Museum in Lausanne, where it will spend the weekend before heading to Brasilia on 2 May for the start of the Torch Relay.
