Paris: Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo on Wednesday promised she would bathe in the River Seine - seen as a key publicity moment to mark the city's hosting of the Olympic Games - after July 14, which would also be after the country's forthcoming parliament elections.

"We have decided not to do it during election time, and after Bastille Day," she told a press conference.

Paris has been working on cleaning up the Seine so that people can swim in it again, as was the case during the 1900 Paris Olympics.
