It may be four years away, but China is already preparing for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. The city has done it all before, having hosted the Summer Games in 2008.

Tracey Holmes reports on China’s experience hosting the event on the world stage.

The curtain has come down on the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.

The skies above Pyeongchang were lit by a firworks display. Athletes and delegates swarmed the stage.

Final celebrations included artificial intelligence and an eight minutes display hosted by Chinese director Zhang Yimou.
