Tony Estanguet, speaking to the Associated Press, said:
‘We have to look at it because we can't say, 'It's not us. It's not about Olympics. The youth, yes they are interested in esport and this kind of thing. Let's look at it. Let's meet them. Let's try if we can find some bridges. I don't want to say 'no' from the beginning. I think it's interesting to interact with the IOC, with them, the esports family, to better understand what the process is and why it is such a success.’
The host for the 2024 Summer Olympics is yet to be decided.
