Madrid, along with other major cities, has placed its bid for the 2020 Olympics. The decision will be made this upcoming December by secret ballot. The Bid is to host both Olympic Games as well as Paralympics. Istanbul and Tokyo are also in the running.
Istanbul, Tokyo and Madrid have handed over their bid files to host the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics to the International Olympic Committee.
IOC members will make a decision on who will host the games by secret ballot in Buenos Aires in September.
The bid documents, which run to several hundred pages, reveal plans for all key areas for hosting the Games including venues, budgets and security. The files are to be made public by the bid cities on Tuesday.
The IOC's evaluation commission, led by Britain's Craig Reedie, will visit the cities in March and prepare a report for members in June.
