French television channel France 3 on Sunday broadcast live the closing ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, saying the performances were unique and impressive.
An anchor said the design of the extinction of the Olympic flame reminds the audience of the flame igniting in the opening ceremony and will exert a deep impression on them.
Another noted that performers dressed in different costumes of China's various ethnic groups, showcasing the country's multi-nationality characteristics.
France 3 also invited Wang Hua, a former Chinese diplomat working in France, as a guest commentator during the broadcast.
Wang said the Beijing Olympic Games fully embodied the unique charm of the Olympic movement which enabled all its participants to see a real China.
Each day more than 1 million viewers watched the Beijing Olympics on France 3 since the Games started, said the anchor.
