Mexico have submitted a formal bid to host the 2036 Summer Olympics to co-incide with the 100th anniversary of the Mexican Olympic Committee.

Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard and the president of the Mexican Olympic Committee, Maria Jose Alcala, met with IOC president Thomas Bach in Lausanne on Friday.

The Mexican representatives said most of the infrastructure required to host the multi-sport event was already in place, and a committee would be set up to support the bid.

Mexico, which hosted the 1968 Games in Mexico City as well as the two FIFA World Cups in 1970 and 1986, will be one of the joint hosts of the 2026 World Cup along with Canada and the US.
