The ceremonies were considerably reduced this year, as Greek authorities cancelled the traditional six-day torch relay across Greece, and banned spectators from other events due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Greece has handed over the Olympic torch to organisers of the 2022 Beijing Winter Games. The sacred flame is expected to arrive in China on Wednesday.
China will be hosting the games from 4 to 20 February.
