Los Angeles will host the Olympics in 2028 instead of 2024 after it reached a deal with the International Olympic Committee, according to reports.
The negotiations could see Paris host the Games in seven years time instead.
Once confirmed it will mean that in 11 years time the Games will head Southern California for a third time, after LA hosted the Olympics in 1984 and 1932.
Originally, the bid only surrounded 2024 but in June the IOC decided that, with both Paris and LA in the running, it would take the unusual step of giving 2024 to one city and 2028 to the other. The last time the U.S. hosted the Summer Games was in Atlanta in 1996.
The 2002 Winter Games took place in Salt Lake City.
