Hosts South Korea produced a show of unity with neighbours North Korea during the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
Their athletes entered under the same flag during the parade, after months of tension on the Korean peninsula.
“We are stronger than all the forces that want to divide us,” declared Olympic president Thomas Bach.
Lizzy Yarnold carried Great Britain’s flag, while Russian athletes came in under the neutral Olympic flag.
