Answer: It never goes out from the moment it’s lit in Greece until the time it is extinguished at the end of the Olympics. It is then transported to the UK via a glass lantern. Each the torch for the torch relay, will be lit from this flame. The person that looks after it is called the Keeper Of The Flame.
