RIO DE JANEIRO — London organizers have symbolically passed the Olympic baton to the hosts of the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.

London organizing committee President Sebastian Coe gave the baton to Rio committee President Carlos Nuzman on Sunday during the official debriefing of the 2012 Games.

Coe handed over the silver-colored baton, which was inscribed with the names of all the past host cities. He says he’s certain “you will organize an excellent Olympics.”
