A Russian spacecraft carrying three astronauts and an unlit Olympic torch docked successfully with the International Space Station (ISS), Russian mission control said.

"We have arrived," a mission control spokesman said as Russian television showed live footage of docking of the Soyuz-TMA capsule carrying Russian, US and Japanese astronauts and the torch for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.
