IOC President Thomas Bach said: “Rio 2016 will be the first time the Olympic Games have been held in South America, and ICRT will work with us once again to bring the sporting action to fans in Cuba. This agreement also means that the IOC has now completed all its broadcast agreements for Rio 2016.”
Rafael Yaech, from ICRT, said: "The broadcast of the Olympic Games in Cuba is a celebration for our hard working people and our quality of life. We are pleased with this agreement with the International Olympic Commitee, with the assurance that we will continue to work together in favour of sports."
ICRT, Cuba’s state broadcaster, has acquired the rights across all broadcast platforms, including free-to-air television, subscription television, internet and mobile phone in all languages.
