The Olympic Flame made its way to the island of Martinique yesterday, the final day of the Olympic Torch Relay swing through French overseas territories.

The flame started its journey through the Caribbean island at Mount Pelee before passing through the cities of Le Lamentin and Le Robert.

At Le Robert, a torchbearer passed the flame to another torchbearer on a boat so it could continue around the island and through the Passe de Curie on its way to other coastal towns and villages dotting its path.

The flame ended its day in the port city of Fort-de-France where a cauldron was lit in front of cheering crowds.

The torch relay will return to mainland France again today where it will continue to travel through some of Frances hottest tourist destinations in the Alpes-Maritimes department.
