The International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Tuesday voted unanimously in support of awarding of 2024 and 2028 Olympic Games on the same occasion.

All the 83 attending IOC members at the 130th IOC session voted for the decisions made by the IOC Executive Board in early June. Los Angeles and Paris are the only bidders for the 2024 Olympic Games after several cities, including Oslo, Rome, Budapest and Munich all withdrew their bid.

A final hosts for the Games will still be decided in a vote which will take place on Sept. 13 in Lima, Peru, at the 131st IOC meeting.

Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti and Anne Hidalgo, the mayor from Paris, jumped to the stage to join hands with IOC President Thomas Bach to celebrate.

"We just wanted to say thank you," Garcetti said.
