It is known that w.h.p. the hitting time τ2σ for the random graph process to have minimum degree 2σ coincides with the hitting time for σ edge-disjoint Hamilton cycles [4, 9, 13]. In this paper we prove an online version of this property. We show that, for a fixed integer σ ≥ 2, if random edges of Kn are presented one by one then w.h.p. it is possible to colour the edges online with σ colours so that at time τ2σ each colour class is Hamiltonian.
