The closing ceremony for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games has taken place in Pyeongchang.

US President Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka, attended the ceremony, sitting in the same box as Kim Yong Chol - a senior member of the North Korean government.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in was also in the same box.

During the ceremony, International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach handed the Olympic flag to the Mayor of Beijing, Chen Jining, symbolising the Winter Games' journey over the next four years from South Korea to the Chinese capital in 2022.

Beijing will be the first city to host both the Summer and Winter Games, having hosted the summer edition in 2008.
