This week sees the opening ceremony of the 22nd Winter Olympic Games which are taking place in Sochi, Russia. More than 2,000 performers welcome the world to Russia, which is staging an Olympics for only the second time following Moscow's hosting of the Summer Games in 1980.
The event will climax with the lighting of the Olympic flame after its record-breaking journey, which included a trip into space.
