Australian singer Cody Simpson and sister Alli wear patriotic colours as they carry Olympic Torch in Rio


Australian singer Cody Simpson and younger sister Alli were no doubt proud to represent Australia on Friday as they carried the Olympic torch in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 19-year-old heartthrob and his 18-year-old sibling were Coca-Cola Olympic Torch Bearers in  celebration of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games and were dressed in patriotic green and gold as they shared their #ThatsGold moment on the streets.

Cody sported a white top, with yellow and green detailing on the sleeves and ‘Rio 2016’ emblazoned across the front.

Meanwhile, radio presenter and fellow singer Alli  wore an identical blouse, while her golden tresses were pulled back in a sleek ponytail.

As Cody handed the torch over to Alli, he held onto his sibling’s hand so the pair could truly cherish the memorable moment.


Last month Coca Cola announced that Cody and Alli were two of the famous Australian names involved in its #ThatsGold campaign, with the beverage company being the presenting partner of the Olympic flame on its journey through Brazil.

Meanwhile, hurdling sensation Michelle Jenneke was unveiled as the #ThatsGold ambassador in Australia.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Cody said: ‘Running the Olympic torch as an ambassador for Coca-Cola as well as my home country of Australia was totally surreal.

‘I was completely honored and most certainly consider it a life time achievement. Passing the Olympic flame to my little sister meant the world to me as an older brother. I’m so stoked Alli was able to be a part of this as well.’

He also wrote on Instagram: ‘So stoked to be here in Rio running with the Olympic flame today representing Australia . A pretty serious honor to be here, lookin forward to the opening ceremony this evening. Cheers @cocacola #thatsgold (sic)’.

Meanwhile, Alli shared a similar sentiment, penning: ‘Today was completely surreal!! a milestone in a young ones life (sic).’

‘To run with the Olympic flame in the official torch relay, day of the opening ceremony an absolutely breathtaking honor – thank you @cocacola & to anyone & everyone who helped make this possible – my life has changed, this will stay with me forever! I love Brazil lets go team AUS #thatsgold @rio2016 xox (sic).’
