Exclusive-Paris 2024 organisers working on putting Olympic flame on Eiffel Tower -source


PARIS (Reuters) – Paris 2024 organisers have been working on installing the Olympic flame on the Eiffel Tower, a source with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Monday.

It was not clear whether the flame would stay on the iconic monument throughout the July 26-Aug. 11 sports extravaganza.

The source added that the flame would not be put at the top of the Eiffel Tower, however, for technical reasons.
