Los Angeles has officially declared its candidature to host the 2028 Olympic Games, leaving Paris to stage the 2024 edition.

In June, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) voted to name hosts for successive Games with just Paris and Los Angeles bidding - but it was unclear which would host in which year.

Both had wanted to host the 2024 event.

The IOC welcomed Los Angeles' move, pledging to contribute $1.8bn (£1.4bn) to the organising committee.
