Frankie Dettori to carry Olympic torch
11:10 AEST Fri Jul 6 2012

Jockey Frankie Dettori will carry the Olympic flame when it reaches Ascot next Tuesday.

Dettori will be passed the torch as it makes its way from Ascot High Street and into the racecourse for a circuit of the parade ring.

"It is an honour and a privilege to be invited to carry the Olympic flame, especially at a track that holds such happy memories for me," Dettori said.

"I'll be watching when the flame reaches its final destination and the Olympic Games can begin."
