The 2018 Olympics are going to be in South Korea. The country starts its winter torch relay. A robot drives a car with the torch and a professor. The first person to hold the torch is the professor. The second person is the robot.
People will carry the torch around South Korea. In February, the torch will come to the place of the Olympics. A person will use it to light the Olympic cauldron. This will be during the first events of the Olympics.
