Almost two weeks ago Pele held the Olympic flame in Santos, the city in the outskirts of Sao Paulo where he started his football career. He never took part in the Games. The Games will open with protesters in the streets. Previously Police have arrested people who threw water buckets at the torch, in attempts to extinguish it. Another fact about the Olympic Games which is different from the organizers expectation: Brazil will host only a fraction of the heads of state during the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Only about 40 countries will send delegations, several of them lower-ranking officials. Many world leaders are staying at home amid security concerns and uncertainty over Brazil’s future government.
