Brisbane has been confirmed as the host city for the 2032 Olympic Games.

The Australian city was the only candidate but the decision still had to be ratified with a vote at the 138th International Olympic Committee Session on Wednesday.

The Olympics will head to Australia for a third time, with Melbourne hosting in 1956 and Sydney in 2000.
