PARIS (Reuters) – French state-controlled power group EDF said on Tuesday it had become an official partner for the Paris 2024 Olympics.

Earlier this week, Airbnb struck a sponsorship deal with the Olympics, although the move was criticized by Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, due to concerns over the negative impact Airbnb might have on the capital’s housing market.
