Olympic flame becomes Sochi ‘selfie hotspot’

One of the most iconic Olympic symbols, the Olympic Flame has attracted so many fans wanting to take a self-portrait with a cellphone camera that a bit of a non-sport competition has been launched. To differ from thousands of Olympic Flame selfies posted on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram users are trying unique poses. However, the favorite is still pretending to hold the gigantic torch. Russia is hosting the Olympics for the first time since the 1980 Summer Games in Moscow, making it a unique opportunity for many Russians to attend the biggest sporting event in the world.
