Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo have been awarded the 2026 Winter Olympic Games after a vote by the International Olympic Committee membership.

Milan beat Stockholm for the right to host the Games in seven years’ time.

The two were the only candidates left after four other cities — Swiss city Sion, Japan’s Sapporo, Austria’s Graz and 1988 hosts Calgary in Canada — had dropped out of the race with concerns over the size and cost of the event.

Meanwhile China Mengniu Dairy and Coca-Cola have signed a global Olympic deal as joint beverages and dairy sponsors starting from 2021 until 2032.

Coca-Cola’s previous deal ran to 2020 and the new agreement makes it the longest Olympic sponsor, having first supported the Games in 1928.

Mengniu is China’s top milk products manufacturer.

There were no financial details available for the deal, which will span six Olympic Games.
