Paris is favourite for the 2024 Games ahead of Los Angeles, but the loser could get the 2028 Olympics. "Athletes not having the established minimum testing level will not to be eligible for World Championships and Olympic Games", the IOC statement said. "This is a position you like to be in".

"We are in a comfortable situation now it will be up to the working group how to best explore, how to best exploit, the positive situation", Bach said.

The working group will report back to the board in time for any new proposal to be put to the members when they gather in Lausanne in July for a candidate city briefing from the LA and Paris bids.

Despite some concerns over political instability, Bach said he saw for himself in those meetings that, regardless of politics, the Acting President and other officials are solidly behind the Games.

Soaring costs have made hosting the Games prohibitive, with London 2012 coming in at £8.8bn ($10.8bn) and Tokyo 2020's latest budget set at $17bn - similar to the GDP of Bosnia and Herzegovina. "This is really encouraging", Bach added". "Do it now, when we know that there is a crisis to solve this process, and thus to avoid a loser and one of the two cities to say, 'I spent all that for nothing'".

NOCK must now adopt the new constitution at a meeting on March 28 and then organize elections.
