STORYLINE:
The countdown clock to the opening ceremony of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games ticked over to 100 days to go on Tuesday.

The French capital is due to see a wildly ambitious waterborne celebration on the Seine River on July 26 to officially open the Games.

But President Emmanuel Macron has been among the officials to admit the plans for the ceremony could be adjusted due to security concerns.

The 100-day countdown comes the same day the Olympic Torch was lit at the birthplace of the sporting competition in Ancient Olympia, Greece.
