The torch for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics arrived in Seoul on Saturday with four weeks left to the games.

It was the first time that the flame came to the capital city since the Seoul Olympics in 1988.  

The first torchbearer in Seoul was freestyle skier Park Hee-jin who competed in the preliminaries for the 2014 Sochi Winter Games in Russia.

The Olympic flame passed the Seoul World Cup Stadium as light snow fell and was handed to the 17th torchbearer, football legend Cha Bum-kun.

The former player and coach took part in the relay with six children who aspire to be soccer players.
