"They have been impressed by the quality of the landmarks and the iconic venues that we offer. We want to show the International Olympic Committee that they can rely on the Paris 2024 team to deliver great Games and we know they will feel the passion and enthusiasm of the French public for this bid".

"Not only is he doing us a major honor, but this is a flawless opportunity to answer some serious questions, it's a crucial meeting for the future", said Estanguet's fellow bid co-chairman Bernard Lapasset.

"We are still in a process where we assess a potential candidacy for 2024", said Baumann.

"I'm a little unorthodox about this", Garcetti said.
