A couple of gymnasts at Rio 2016 have taken to heart one of the founding principles of Olympism — “placing sport at the service of the harmonious development of humankind” — in a very modern way.

Lee Eun-ju of South Korea and Hong Un-jong of the North took a quick smiling snapshot during the training period before the start of the Games.

The pictures of the two women have been widely praised as capturing the Olympic spirit.

North and South Korea are technically still at war with each other.

Relations between the two neighbors have worsened following recent missile ‘tests’ from Pyongyang.
