Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven made a last-minute effort to back Stockholm's 2026 Winter Olympics bid on Sunday, saying his country was ready to host the Games and deliver on its promises should the International Olympic Committee pick it, according to Euronews.

The Swedish capital is up against Italy`s Milan, with the two cities left as the only bidders in the race, after four others pulled out earlier in the process, scared off by the cost and size of the Games.

The IOC will elect the winner in a vote on Monday.
