Jackie Chan carries the Olympic flame

The Olympic flame reached the Olympic stadium Pyeongchang on Friday (February 9), with the event being given a touch of glamour as actor Jackie Chan briefly ran with the flame.

At a ceremony later on Friday the flame will light a cauldron in the stadium, marking the official start of the games, although competition has been taking place since Thursday (February 8).

The winter games in South Korea run until February 25, as athletes battle not only each other but biting temperatures as well.
