Olympic Day was introduced in 1948 to commemorate the birth of the Modern Olympic Games on 23 June 1894 at the Sorbonne in Paris.
The goal was to promote participation in sport across the globe regardless of age, gender or athletic ability.
All around the world National Olympic Committees are celebrating Olympic Day in a variety of ways.
