A French probe into corruption at the International Association of Athletics Federations was last week extended to allegations of bribery ahead of the 2009 vote which awarded the 2016 Olympics to Rio.France's financial prosecutor has also been investigating former IAAF boss Lamine Diack and his close circle of advisers and family members since 2015.

The IOC put the rubber stamp on a pre-determined conclusion Wednesday, giving Paris the 2024 Games and LA the 2028 Games in a history-making vote. Los Angeles moved to 2028 , and those Olympics will halt a stretch of 32 years without a Summer Games in the United States.

Paris, which has hosted two previous Olympics, will stage the event 100 years after its last Games in 1924 while Los Angeles will also organize its third Games after 1932 and 1984.

There were no other candidates for either the 2024 or 2028 Games and the votes, held at an IOC session in the Peruvian capital, were a formality.

For the first time in history, the Olympics will confirm two Summer Games host cities at the same time on Wednesday, when Paris is handed hosting rights for 2024 and Los Angeles wins 2028 . The International Olympic Committee ( IOC )

International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach speaks during the opening IOC session in Lima, Peru, Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017. The IOC will vote to ratify Los Angeles as the host city of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games and Paris as the host city of the 2024 Games .

"This is a wonderful moment for the people of Paris and France and also the Olympic Movement," the co-chair of the Paris bid Tony Estanguet said.

"The Games are coming to Paris for the first time in 100 years and we will deliver an amazing celebration of sport at the heart of one of the world's greatest cities."

The IOC decided in July to award both Games at the same time, following the withdrawal of four of the six cities bidding for the 2024 Olympics, amid concerns about the size, cost and complexity of organizing the world's biggest multi-sports event.

Los Angeles then dropped its bid for the 2024 Olympics, for which it had been campaigning for over two years, in return for receiving the 2028 edition.

MOMENTOUS DAY

"This is a momentous day for the people of Los Angeles and the United States," said LA mayor Eric Garcetti. "For the first time in a generation, we are bringing the Games back to the City of Angels."

The IOC ratified a proposal to award both the 2024 and 2028 Olympics this summer, paving the way for Los Angeles and Paris to both host the Games . Which city gets 2024 and which gets 2028 is to be decided after further negotiations among both cities and the IOC .

"LA loves the Olympics because the Games have lifted up our city twice before."

Paris, with a total Games budget of 6.8 billion euros ($8.09 billion), had failed with previous attempts to land the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympics.

The presence of French President Emmanuel Macron, who also spoke on Wednesday in a video message, at the IOC's extraordinary session in July in Lausanne was seen as crucial in sealing the deal for the French capital for 2024.

The LA Games, with a budget of $5.3 billion, will essentially follow the plan they had in place for 2024, including housing athletes at the UCLA campus.

It is the first time the IOC has awarded a Games 11 years in advance, as it traditionally gives the next Olympic host city seven years to prepare.

The Olympic body, however, was eager to secure the future of its prime product after Boston, Budapest, Rome and Hamburg all pulled the plug on their 2024 bids mid-race, fearing high costs and local opposition, leaving just Paris and LA to battle it out.

Bach, who said the double allocation was a "win-win-win" deal, added that the unanimous decision would secure the future of the Games and ensure successful Olympics.

Both the 2014 winter Games in Russia's Sochi and the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics were mired in controversy over corruption, embezzlement and doping allegations, dealing a major blow to the reputations of the event and the IOC.

Tokyo, the host of the next summer Games in 2020, has also had to fend off allegations of corruption regarding the decision to award it the Games four years ago.
