French President Emmanuel Macron has claimed that Paris 2024 is not yet providing benefits to some of the capital's poorest areas.
Macron made the comments as he continues to deal with protests carried out by the yellow vests movement in the country.
He particularly pointed out the department of Seine-Saint-Denis, where many of the Olympic and Paralympic venues will be located, as a cause of concern.
The President was speaking at an event in Evry-Courcouronnes, in the south of Paris.
"At the moment, we are not meeting the goals we should have for the parts of the Paris region that are most affected by this big event," he said, according to Reuters.
"It is clear that the region, and above all Seine-Saint-Denis because it will be most affected by several big new venues, is not getting a fair return.
"So we are going to work on it because for now, I'm not happy."
Seine-Saint-Denis will host the Athletes' Village for Paris 2024 and is also home to the focal venue the Stade de France, which will host the Opening and Closing Ceremonies and athletics.
Macron was a key figure in the Paris bid for the 2024 Games and travelled to Lausanne in July 2017 to take part in a crucial presentation in front of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
He had earlier met with IOC President Thomas Bach in the Swiss city, greeting him in the rain outside the Olympic Museum.
Paris was then awarded the 2024 Games in September 2017, as part of a historic decision which saw sole rival Los Angeles given the rights for 2028.
Bach travelled to Marseille, which will host Paris 2024's sailing competitions, to meet Macron later that month.
Macron's comments were criticised by Seine-Saint-Denis President Stephane Troussel who accused him of being late in raising the concerns.
"The heritage of the Olympics is a battle I have been fighting for months," he told Reuters.
"To try to encourage the state to do more.
"I say to him, better later than never."
Tony Estanguet, the triple Olympic canoeing champion who now leads the Paris 2024 Organising Committee, reportedly welcomed "the ambition that the head of state has reaffirmed".
"We will obviously be able to go further in helping people with a state that is highly motivated at our side," he said.
The yellow vests movement has been protesting austerity issues, high costs of living and rising fuel prices, among other concerns.
Paris has witnessed violent protests and riots with the movement spreading to other areas of France and across the world.
