South Africa hoping to host Olympics 2020
Tuesday 13th July, 2010

South Africa hopes to follow up its hosting of the football world cup by staging the Olympics after confirming it plans to bid for the 2020 games.

The country's Olympic committee has invited potential host cities to "state their intention of being involved".

Organisers hope that the success of this year's world cup will help lead to the first Olympics on African soil.

The International Olympic Committee has yet to begin the selection process but a host is set to be named in mid-2013.
