Highlights of the Ceremony taken at Olympia for the RIO 2016 Olympic Games.

As tradition dictates, the torch lighting ceremony took place at the Temple of Hera in Olympia, on the morning of Thursday (21 of April).

After the age-old ritual, the torch began its truce announcement journey.

The itinerary includes a visit to the UN headquarters in Geneva, and the relay then follows until the lighting of the cauldron at the opening of the Games, the Maracana in August.
