Joao Havelange, who died on Tuesday at 100, transformed FIFA into a global business behemoth and helped bring the Olympics to Rio, only to resign in disgrace after a corruption scandal. The Samaritano Hospital in Rio de Janeiro confirmed that Havelange, who had been treated in July for pneumonia, died early in the morning. Plaudits for the soccer boss quickly came from his controversial successor Sepp Blatter, who was suspended last year as president of FIFA over ethics violations. Thomas Bach, president of the International Olympic Committee, said flags would be flown at half mast at Rio Olympic venues. Brazilian interim president Michel Temer called Havelange one of the "important leaders" of world sport. As head of FIFA for 24 years and with half a century on the IOC, he thought and acted big, becoming a central figure in the evolution of today's sporting mega-events. One of his final achievements was to use his clout to help Rio win its bid to host this year's Olympic Games - the first held in South America.
Havelange "saw the world through a telescope and not through a microscope," former US secretary of state Henry Kissinger said. Born to a wealthy Belgian immigrant family in Rio in 1916, Jean-Marie Faustin Goedefroid de Havelange graduated with a law degree, but sport was his true love. He represented Brazil in swimming at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin and again in Helsinki in 1952, where he was on the water polo team. His real calling turned out to be in management, where he rose to the top echelons of sporting bodies, setting a standard for the kind of lengthy - and deeply entrenched - reigns that some critics blame for fostering a culture of corruption.
Havelange was president of the Brazilian Sports Confederation for 15 years and joined the Brazilian Olympic Committee in 1955, then the IOC in 1963 - a position he retained until 2011. In 1974 he was elected FIFA president, succeeding Sir Stanley Rous as the first non-European in the role. Under Havelange the World Cup expanded from a 16-nation event focused on Europe and a few South American sides to the planet-wide sporting festival it has become. By the time he handed over the FIFA reins to Blatter in 1998, the number of competing nations had doubled to 32, with 12 coming from Asia, Africa or the CONCACAF region for North and Central America and the Caribbean.
He also oversaw FIFA's inauguration of the Under-17 World Cup, the World Youth Cup, the Women's World Cup, the Indoor World Cup and introduced the Confederations' Cup, played between continental champions. Havelange neither drank nor smoked and met with Pope John Paul II on no less than three occasions. However, a less savory side eventually overwhelmed his image as a clean-living powerbroker. In 2013, Havelange resigned as honorary president of FIFA after confirmation of reports that he had taken bribes.
Critics say corruption was as much a part of Havelange's legacy as the successful internationalization of soccer. His successor Blatter announced his own resignation in June 2015 after a massive corruption probe led to the arrests of seven top FIFA officials.

The result means new City coach Pep Guardiola can breathe a huge sigh of relief as the Abu Dhabi-backed club now has one foot in the lucrative group stage.
David Silva opened the scoring in the 13th minute, between two failed spot kicks from Aguero.
New signing Nolito scored his first City goal shortly after the break, and Aguero then tallied two more as Guardiola's side seized complete control ahead of the return leg in Manchester next week. England goalkeeper Joe Hart was again left on the bench by Guardiola, with Nicolas Otamendi and Pablo Zabaleta drafted into the City defense as last year's Champions League semi-finalist embarked on its latest European adventure. Raheem Sterling won an early penalty for City, just as he did in Saturday's 2-1 Premier League victory at home to Sunderland, when he was fouled by Muniru Sulley inside the area.
Aguero saw his spot kick turned away by Steaua keeper Florin Nita, with Nolito blasting the rebound off the crossbar. City capitalized on more sloppy defending from the home side when Sterling stole the ball from Alin Tosca and set up Silva to drill a bullet shot past a helpless Nita.
Gabriel Enache handed Aguero another chance from the penalty spot with just 20 minutes gone when he crudely upended Aleksandar Kolarov, but this time the Argentine blazed well over.
However, the striker redeemed himself with a superbly placed finish four minutes before the break after Sterling sifted the ball into his path on the edge of the area. Before the match Guardiola spoke of his desire to play a brand of soccer that will captivate the club's supporters, and the Spaniard was delighted with his side's performance as it showed Steaua no mercy in the second half. Nolito, played through by Kevin de Bruyne, rounded Nita to notch City's third goal and open his account for his new club after arriving from Celta Vigo in the summer.
Aguero rounded off a flowing move of one-two passes with an arrowed low strike into the corner in the 78th minute, and he completed his hat-trick a minute from time after racing clear of the Steaua defence to beat Nita from the top of the box.
Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero reacts after missing a penalty shot as Steaua Bucharest goalkeeper Florin Nita celebrates during their Champions League qualifying playoff first leg match at National Arena Stadium in Bucharest on Tuesday. For two days in a row, Thiago Braz da Silva was celebrated as a national hero in the Olympic Stadium, but on both days France's Renaud Lavillenie was relentlessly booed by the home crowd. Bach described the jeering that emanated from the stands during Tuesday's podium ceremony for the pole vault as "shocking behavior," saying it was unacceptable at the Olympics. Da Silva had an upset win over the defending champion late on Monday, and thousands of fans kept on booing the Frenchman as he tried to reclaim the gold medal position during the thrilling late-night duel. Instead of concentrating solely on his final jump, Lavillenie gave the home supporters the thumbs down. He condemned the crowd's behavior soon after the event ended, saying nothing like it had been seen since Jesse Owens took part in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. Lavillenie quickly apologized and retracted his statement, but maintained the Brazilian fans were disregarding the Olympic spirit. During the ceremony, da Silva raised his arms to calm the fans and applauded the silver medal of world-record holder Lavillenie, who won gold four years ago in London.
Soon the tears were rolling down Lavillenie's face, and it was not because he had won silver. Lavillenie was consoled later by da Silva and Russian pole vault legend Sergei Bubka, an IOC member. After the ceremony, the stadium announcer for the remainder of competition reminded the crowd to have "the utmost respect" for all athletes.

If Kerri Walsh Jennings ends up with a fourth medal in Olympic beach volleyball, it will be bronze - not gold, like the other three she has earned in what had been an unblemished record at the Games. Walsh Jennings and partner April Ross were relegated to the third-place game by Brazil's reigning world champions, who beat the Americans in straight sets on Tuesday night to advance to the final against Germany. Brazilians Agatha and Barbara, cheered by a boisterous crowd at the Copacabana venue, scored a 22-20, 21-18 victory, keeping alive the host nation's chances for a gold medal after its top-seeded team lost to Germany earlier in the day.
Germany's gold medal sprint cyclist Kristina Vogel has complained that her dominant British rivals have an unfair advantage, although she is not sure what it is. Several riders in Rio have grumbled about Britain's cycling hegemony for the past three Olympics.
Just to highlight the level of Britain's control, in the three events it did not win, it took silver.
But at the world championships between each Olympics, Britain never enjoys anything like the same dominance, leading some, such as Vogel, to ask questions. Two athletes who helped each other across the finish line after an accidental midrace collision in the women's 5,000m have been granted places in the final, organizers confirmed.
Nikki Hamblin and Abbey D'Agostino were praised for their sporting behavior after they clashed during Tuesday's heat.
The drama unfolded when US runner D'Agostino clipped New Zealander Hamblin with about 2,000 meters to go, sending both women sprawling.
As a distraught Hamblin lay on the track, her hopes of an Olympic medal seemingly ended, D'Agostino helped her to her feet and encouraged her to finish the race.
New 1,500m champion Faith Kipyegon sat at the podium not long after winning her first major title - when she beat the world-record holder - only to watch reporters ask the woman to her right questions about doping.
It was perhaps a difficult introduction for the 22-year-old Kenyan and former junior champion, but this is athletics in 2016.
Sitting to her right, Genzebe Dibaba of Ethiopia, the reigning world champion and record holder, said she was "crystal clean," a commitment she was asked to make after her coach was arrested in Spain and held for three days in June on suspicion of supplying banned substances. When he wakes up in the morning, Kyrie Irving looks at the scar stretching across his left knee, an enduring symbol of his journey over the past year.
This time last summer, Irving, Team USA's ankle-breaking point guard - and kid brother to his doting teammates - was at a personal low point. Playing in his first NBA Finals, he shattered his kneecap while banging into Golden State's Klay Thompson in Game 1.
An Egyptian judo competitor has been sent home after he refused to shake hands with his Israeli opponent after their bout on Friday, the International Olympic Committee said. Islam El Shehaby, 34, came under fire for leaving the bout without a required handshake or a bow after losing to Or Sasson of Israel.
Faces buried in hands and tears falling, the Brazilian women's volleyball team lost to China in a five-set quarterfinal match on Tuesday. It was another heartbreaking defeat for the host country, only hours after its women's soccer team fell in a penalty shootout to Sweden.
China rallied from losing the first set to stun the shaky two-time defending champion 15-13 in the decisive fifth. As China celebrated the biggest upset yet and quieted a stunned crowd, Brazil captain Fabiana pulled her team together in a huddle. Brazil had been the heavy favorite to face the United States in a potential gold-medal match after beating the Americans in the championship match in each of the past two Olympics. China is now on a path for a third volleyball gold under head coach "Jenny" Lang Ping, a former player who coached the US to a silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Games. Unnerved by the loud cheering and booing of Brazilian supporters in Rio's packed Maracanazinho stadium, China took the lead in the third set with a succession of unstoppable spikes by top scorer Zhu Ting. A young China team that had been far from steady before Tuesday played its best, most consistent match yet. Meanwhile, Karch Kiraly's top-ranked US squad moved one step closer to its goal of capturing the program's first volleyball gold by defeating familiar opponent Japan in straight sets to reach the semifinals. The unbeaten US (6-0) won 25-16, 25-23, 25-22 and has dropped just five sets all tournament. Serbia lost in four sets to the US during pool play but pulled off a surprising five-set victory at last year's World Cup in Japan that forced the Americans to qualify for Rio in January.
Team China celebrates after coming back to beat host Brazil in the volleyball quarterfinals on Tuesday. With a quick 3-0 win over Germany on Tuesday evening, the all-time leading Chinese squad secured its third of the four table tennis golds up for grabs in Rio. Germany, an unexpected finalist after outlasting 2012 London runner-up Japan in five games on Monday, won just one of 10 sets against China en route to winning the nation's first medal for women players. With two Grand Slam winners in Li Xiaoxia and Ding Ning plus current world No 1 Liu Shiwen on his roster, Kong, a Grand Slam winner 16 years ago, has a loaded lineup. When Kong took the helm of the women's team nearly four years ago, key players Li and Ding had already proven themselves under former coach Shi Zhihao. After mentoring athletes around the globe for nearly three decades, Azevedo, the son of a Brazilian World Cup soccer player, never dreamed of returning to the city of his birth as head coach of a team from the other side of the planet. Despite soccer's dominance in Brazil, Azevedo gravitated to water polo as a youth and played on the national team from 1974 to 1980. He then moved to the United States to study and play sport at California State University before launching a remarkable coaching career that included helming the Long Beach State University squad, the US men's national team and a professional team in Italy. The 60-year-old began his China adventure with a short stint with the men's national squad before the 2012 London Olympics and took over the women's team in 2013. Although his goal of China reaching at least the final four was dashed after Monday's 12-7 loss to Italy, Azevedo still has a reason to be proud in front of his relatives and friends in Rio.
His son Tony, who was also born in Rio, finished his fifth Olympics as captain of the US team. While there's been no indication from Chinese authorities about whether he'll be retained after these Games, Azevedo said coaching the nation's young talent while experiencing a new culture has been very rewarding.
Jason Kenny was "untouchable" at the Rio Olympics, according to the man whose record the sprint sensation equaled on Tuesday. Kenny, 28, won his sixth Games gold medal in claiming the keirin championship at the Rio velodrome, drawing level with fellow track cycling great Chris Hoy as Britain's most successful Olympian of all time. He also matched Hoy's remarkable achievement from Beijing eight years ago of taking three gold medals at one Games - in the sprint, team sprint and keirin. It brought with it gushing praise from the man he might yet surpass in Tokyo four years from now.
Hoy, who was commentating for British television in Rio, handed Kenny his one defeat in an Olympics, beating his then 20-year-old teammate in the sprint in 2008.
It was a golden double on Tuesday for Kenny and fiancee Laura Trott, who won the women's omnium. Trott also won the team pursuit in Rio, accomplishing the same double she managed as a 20-year-old in London four years ago.


Things will be getting even better for the star couple later this year, although Kenny is not sure whether he will carry on to another Olympics. While Trott was totally dominant in the omnium, Kenny's keirin victory was controversial, as he and bronze medalist Azizulhasni Awang of Malaysia appeared to jump the gun in the final. A false start was called but neither was disqualified as officials couldn't decide which one had infringed first. On the restart, German world champion Joachim Eilers also false started, but having let off the other two, officials did likewise with him. British head coach Iain Dyer even produced video material taken by his backroom staff to show officials the call wasn't obvious.
British cyclists Laura Trott and fiance Jason Kenny pose with their gold medals on Tuesday. Awang, nicknamed the 'Pocket Rocket' because of his diminutive stature, came third in the keirin, earning a bronze medal for a country with little heritage in a sport dominated by Europe and Australia. After disappointment at the past two Games, the 28-year-old who sustained an horrific injury in 2011 when part of a wooden track pierced his leg, finished just behind Matthijs Buchli of the Netherlands in a race won by Britain's Jason Kenny. Awang came to cycling by riding mountain bikes around the fishing villages where he lived in eastern Malaysia. Awang hopes his success on the track will inspire more people to take up cycling in Malaysia and encourage investment in the sport. The 22-year-old became Brazil's first medalist in flatwater canoeing on Tuesday, winning a silver in the 1,000m singles.
His unlikely story began in Ubaitaba, a small town in Brazil's impoverished northeast, where Queiroz grew up with his mother and nine siblings, four of them adopted.
The town's name stems from the indigenous word for "canoe", historically the main mode of transportation on the Rio de Contas. He couldn't figure out why everyone called the boy "Sem Rim", which means "missing kidney" in Portuguese.
Coached by Spaniard Jesus Morlan, he's now competing on the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon before a roaring crowd, including his mother and several friends.
The hardship he has faced, Queiroz said, lies in the countless hours of grueling training it takes to become a top-level Olympic canoeist.
Brazil's Isaquias Queiroz celebrates winning the silver medal in Tuesday's 1,000m canoe single. The man who sold vegetables and ice cream on the streets as an impoverished child is now a national hero after defeating France's Sofiane Oumiha by unanimous decision in their thrilling lightweight final. The 27-year-old, who said he once faked an arm injury so he could get hospital treatment and then used the bandages to tape his hands for boxing, was a deserving winner after another day of judging controversy.
Brazil had only ever won one silver and three bronze boxing medals before Conceicao's heroics, and he said the title was a gift to his daughter, who will celebrate her second birthday on Friday. Each punch Conceicao landed was greeted with huge cheers, against a backdrop of "You're gonna die!" chants aimed at the 21-year-old Frenchman.
It was the first time at the Games that the 9,000-capacity Rio Centro Pavilion was packed to the rafters.
The fighters engaged in a slugfest right from the opening bell, with Conceicao the busier of the two as they traded heavy hits. Oumiha held the center of the ring in the third and held firm when the Brazilian invaded his space, but the Frenchman had difficulty landing clean punches behind Conceicao's steady guard. Conceicao grew up fast, hawking his meagre wares with his grandmother in the northern city of Salvador, knocking on car windows to sell melting ice cream to the occupants.
He paid tribute to the raucous crowd and to the people back in his home state who raised him in the most trying of circumstances. Bronze went to Cuba's Lazaro Alvarez - a semifinal victim of Conceicao's - and Otgondalai Dorjnyambuu of Mongolia. Oumiha was largely an unknown quantity heading into Rio and admitted the Brazilian was the better man on the day. Asked whether he felt more pride or disappointment at taking home silver, he replied: "A bit of both. An "empty brain" contributed to China leaving Rio without any gymnastics gold medals - the nation's worst showing since returning to the Games in 1984. Usually a major player in the sport, China claimed only two gymnastics medals in Rio - bronze for its men's and women's teams.
It was a long fall from the 2008 Beijing Games, when the host country dominated the sport and claimed both the men's and women's team titles.
Deng Shudi, who finished fourth in the parallel bars final on Tuesday, said the pressure was high going into the competition. China's sports system had been enormously successful since the country returned to the Olympic fold in 1984, culminating with top spot on the medals table at the Beijing Games.
Japan ended China's eight-year reign as men's team champion last week even after China had come out of qualifying on top. China's squad, comprising Deng, You, Lin Chaopan, Zhang Chenglong and Liu Yang, sat dejectedly after Russia took silver, with Zhang breaking down in tears.
The women's competition was dominated by the US, which claimed the team title, while American Simone Biles won a record-equaling fourth gold on Tuesday. There was no pre-match fanfare to present Antonio Conte to the Stamford Bridge faithful before his debut as Chelsea manager, but Monday's 2-1 win over West Ham United sent a clear message the team is already marching to his orders. Conte's side dominated its London rival with the kind of drive that made his name as both a player and a coach in Italy - energy that was so lacking at Chelsea last season when the 2015 EPL champion failed to defend its title.
As the former Italy and Juventus boss watched from the sidelines, barking instructions and waving his arms, the Stamford Bridge crowd sensed a renewed confidence among many of the players who performed so poorly a few months ago. After being hugged by fans - many of whom have yet to come to terms with last year's firing of the club's most successful manager, Jose Mourinho - Conte said he believed his approach is working well. After struggling to match West Ham in the opening 15 minutes, Chelsea gradually tightened its grip on the game. Eden Hazard, booed by fans last year for failing to produce anything close to his best form, got off the mark early in the second half by converting a penalty after defender Cesar Azpilicueta was fouled by Michail Antonio. Chelsea dominated the second half, with Hazard influential and new signing N'Golo Kante adding more bite in midfield. But it looked like the Blues would be punished for not turning their possession into goals when West Ham defender James Collins hooked in a shot in the 78th minute after Chelsea failed to clear a corner.
Spain striker Diego Costa, however, capped a performance that recalled his early, unstoppable form at Chelsea by slamming home a last-minute winner after new signing Michy Batshuayi, brought on by Conte minutes earlier, set him up with a header. Costa arguably should have been shown a second yellow card after catching West Ham goalkeeper Adrian with a late challenge, but he stayed on to steer a dramatic winner into the bottom-left corner from 20 yards. The bruising Costa's goal made it a positive opening night for Conte, who handed a full debut to former Leicester City man N'Golo Kante and saw another debutant, substitute Michy Batshuayi, set up the winning strike. But it was a bitter defeat for West Ham manager Slaven Bilic, who lost debutant Andre Ayew to a thigh injury in the 34th minute. Yaya Toure didn't travel with Manchester City for its Champions League playoff match against Steaua Bucharest on Tuesday, plunging his future with the English club into further doubt. City manager Pep Guardiola last week included Toure in his provisional squad list for the two-legged playoff, but the Cote d'Ivoire midfielder was not in the shuffled lineup that flew to Romania.
Toure wasn't in City's squad for the team's opening game of the Premier League season, a 2-1 win over Sunderland on Saturday. Chelsea's Diego Costa in action during Monday's English Premier League match against West Ham United at Stamford Bridge in London. Spain international striker Alvaro Morata was unable to hold back tears on Monday when Real Madrid officially welcomed him back to Santiago Bernabeu stadium. Morata joined Real when he was just 15 years old, playing for the club's youth and then reserve teams before debuting with the top squad in 2010. He was sold to Juventus in 2014 in a five-year deal worth $22 million, and he excelled by leading the Italian team to the Champions League final in 2015.
A first-division game in Sweden was abandoned on Monday after the goalkeeper for the visiting team was attacked by a pitch invader, local media reported.
The match between Jonkopings Sodra and Ostersunds was approaching full-time when a masked man dressed all in black burst onto the pitch and assaulted away keeper Aly Keita. Keita was chased and struck before players and security officials intervened and arrested the attacker.
Dutch coach Dick Advocaat on Monday arrived in Istanbul to take over as manager of Turkish giant Fenerbahce and try to reverse the club's fortunes after it failed to win silverware last season and exited this year's Champions League. Advocaat's rapid appointment follows the firing of Vitor Pereira in an acrimonious parting that ended with the club unilaterally terminating the contract of the Portuguese. Alex Rodriguez will not be playing baseball for the rest of the season, his publicist confirmed on Monday. Rodriguez was released by the New York Yankees on Saturday, but reports surfaced on Monday that he might sign with the Miami Marlins. Top seed Serena Williams gave up a wild card entry into the ATP-WTA Cincinnati Masters tournament on Monday after complaining of a shoulder injury.
The world No 1, who is being chased in the rankings by German Angelique Kerber, took a free entry only last week and was seeded atop the draw. The NFL has said the four linebackers being investigated for an alleged link to performance-enhancing drugs will be suspended if they don't agree to be interviewed by the league in the next 10 days. Adolpho Birch, the league's senior vice-president of labor policy and league affairs sent a letter to the NFL Players Association on Monday, detailing the plan to suspend James Harrison of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers of the Green Bay Packers and free agent Mike Neal if they don't speak with the league by Aug 25.
Here's your chance to run where Olympic men's 20km race walk champion Wang Zhen and runner-up Cai Zelin trained for the Rio Games. The Changbaishan Mountain Forest Marathon will be held at Erdaobaihe Town at the foot of the Changbaishan peak in northeastern Jilin province on Sept 24-25. Besides running on the same trails as the Olympic stars, participants can attend activities and forums in the China Forest Tourism Festival, which is being held in conjunction with the runs.
The competition is part of a series of forest runs hosted by the Beijing Malon Sports Culture Co Ltd and the Qiange International Investment Co Ltd.
During the first week of the Rio Olympics, women dominated the screen in evening coverage by US network NBC. Three college professors writing a book entitled Olympic Television: Inside the Biggest Show on Earth, announced the results of their research on Monday. For all of the Summer and Winter Olympics dating to 1994, the 2012 London Games was the only time that women were given more TV time than the men.
But even that has not matched the imbalance seen in Rio so far, said Andy Billings, a sports media professor at the University of Alabama.
NBC has been among media outlets criticized for incidents of alleged sexism regarding the Olympics. An network commentator, for example, credited a female Hungarian swimmer's husband for her career turnaround.
Much of the disparity can be explained by women's dominance in some of the sports that NBC follows most closely in its prime-time telecasts. For instance, women's gymnastics has accounted for nearly three hours more screen time, Billings said. The US women's team and Simone Biles have dominated gymnastics in Rio, while US men have been less competitive. Women's beach volleyball - in which the competitors wear bikinis - has logged two hours and 45 minutes on NBC's marquee telecast, the study found. Meanwhile, boxing is an example of a sport that doesn't appeal to women at all, and it has not been given any prime-time coverage. Billings said that with the dominance of Michael Phelps, male swimmers have received an hour's more airtime than women, and men had an edge in early coverage of track and field.
Fiji's euphoria following its historic Olympic gold medal in rugby sevens could be tinged with sadness, with Sports Minister Laisenia Tuitubou warning on Tuesday that the nation might not be able to afford to retain coach Ben Ryan. Tuitubou told the Fiji Times the country could only hope the Englishman's love for the South Pacific island nation and its rugby flair would be enough to convince him to stay. Ryan's value as a sevens coach rocketed after he guided Fiji to gold in Rio to give the country its first Olympic medal.
The International Association of Athletics Federations, led by Sebastian Coe, is exploring tightening the rules that allow athletes to switch the country they represent in track and field. The IAAF has discussed the issue during the Games and it is on the agenda for Saturday's council meeting, the sport's governing body said. On the eve of the Olympics, the IAAF allowed 85 athletes to compete for new countries, including 12 now on the Bahrain team after previously representing African or Caribbean nations.
That was among the possibilities being looked at by investigators trying to determine what led to a series of evacuations at the airport on Sunday night.
Investigators also are interviewing witnesses and reviewing surveillance footage to figure out what caused the chaos.
An internal New York Police Department briefing document obtained by Associated Press on Monday says patrons started to act in an extremely disruptive manner while watching the Olympics. The timing of Bolt's gold medal success roughly corresponded with an anonymous 911 call from a woman reporting gunshots in Terminal 8. The Olympic Broadcasting Service said all seven people injured when an aerial television camera it operates plummeted more than 18 meters in the Olympic Park on Sunday have been treated and released from care. OBS, which has operated cameras in Olympic parks and arenas since 2001, said it had launched an investigation into the matter. Acting Brazilian President Michel Temer will not attend the closing ceremony on Sunday evening at Maracana stadium, his press office announced on Monday.


Temer's decision comes after spectators reacted with prolonged booing and jeering toward him at the opening ceremony on Aug 5. Temer is regarded as one of the main masterminds of the impeachment process facing President Dilma Rousseff, which a large proportion of the population considers a coup. He reportedly asked that his name not be mentioned in speeches at the opening ceremony, and his only appearance was at the end of the ceremony when he had to declare the Games open. Cuban wrestler Mijain Lopez danced endlessly on the mat after taking out Turkey's Riza Kayaalp to win the men's 130kg.
The 6-foot-7 champion also body-slammed his coach when he came running up to congratulate him, then hoisted him in the air like a small child. Lopez went on complete an extended lap of honor, taking selfies with Cuban fans after what was his third Olympic victory, equaling the record of Russia's Aleksandr Karelin.
More cuts will be made to services for athletes at the Paralympics next month unless additional funding is rapidly secured for the cash-strapped Games in Rio. Crisis talks were held on Monday by International Paralympic Committee President Philip Craven with the Brazilian government and Rio's mayor in a late attempt to preserve the quality of the Games in recession-battered Brazil.
The committee has warned that some countries' delegations might not be able to travel to Rio for the Sept 7-18 event if they do not receive $7 million in grants that should have been paid last month. A Bulgarian athlete was questioned by police on Monday after he was accused of attacking and injuring chambermaids working at the athletes' village.
One of the women claimed that the incident happened when she and her colleagues went to the athlete's room to clean it. It is not the first time that employees at the village have been assaulted at the Olympics. Boxers Hassan Saada of Morocco and Namibia's Jonas Junias Jonas were arrested on charges of sexual assault on Aug 5 and Aug 8 respectively but were subsequently released.

Chinese Olympians looking beyond sporting glory to start new lives are being hampered by a lack of education, according to a former champion speed skater. With the 2016 Rio Olympics drawing to a close on Sunday, a group of Chinese athletes have set their sights on retirement or taking indefinite leave from sports after years of rigorous training, sometimes at the cost of family life. Following the practice of their predecessors, champion athletes still favor offers from within the country's State-run sports system to become coaches and team management officials, extending their athletic skills to help a new generation. All national teams in China's six strong events - including table tennis, badminton and gymnastics - competing in Rio are guided by former champion head coaches. He was referring to his head coach Liu Guoliang, a three-time Olympic champion at the 1996 Atlanta Games. Many of China's former sporting heroes have become government or sports management officials, operating in their respective fields.
According to the General Administration of Sport of China, 163 Chinese Olympic champions had retired by last month.
Notable athletes who have become officials include four-time Olympic champion table tennis player Deng Yaping.
With the boundary between sports and entertainment becoming blurred, the new generation of sports celebrities, such as star swimmer Sun Yang, have sensed an opportunity to embrace showbiz. Handing Yuyou Media Group in Zhejiang province said in June it had signed a contract with Sun, who will become the company's first contracted entertainer. Although he has yet to retire, the deal has paved way for Sun, who won the men's 200m freestyle in Rio, to cash in on his popularity for a new career in entertainment. A glittering array of retired sports stars, including Olympic men's diving champion Tian Liang, gymnastics champion Li Xiaopeng and two-time tennis Grand Slam winner Li Na have all tried their hands at TV acting and appearances on reality shows.
But Yang Yang, a former champion speed skater who is an International Olympic Committee member, said more all-around education and occupational training should be provided for a wider range of retired athletes - not just stars - to make the transition from sports to other workplaces. The most typical case Yang mentioned was that of Ai Dongmei, a former national marathon champion, who planned to sell all her medals in 2007 when she was unemployed. To help fellow retired athletes rediscover their post-sports careers, Yang set up the Champion Foundation in Beijing in 2011, providing former athletes with language, occupational and human resource education. Two-time Grand Slam winner Li Na at a promotional event in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, on May, 2016. Li, a legendary Chinese Olympian, made his name by winning three gymnastics gold medals at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. Current career: Owner of Shanghai Sharks basketball club and a member of China's top political advisory body. Arguably the best-known athlete from China, Yao has not let his influence fade after retiring in 2011. Ai, who won multiple marathons including the 1999 race in Beijing, faced a tough challenge making a living after retiring due to her lack of education.
After winning three gold medals at the 2001 Beijing Universiade, Zhang retired without a job after a foot injury ruled him out of the 2004 Athens Olympics. After winning the 48kg national title by setting a domestic record in 1990, Zou retired and began working at the Jilin provincial training base as a kitchen staff member. The Frenchman was the defending Olympic champion from London 2012, but saw da Silva snatch victory with an Olympic record of 6.03m. But the vaulting, disrupted by heavy rain that delayed the start, was the scene of extended jeers and whistles from a local crowd that got increasingly behind Braz as it realized he was in with a medal chance.
Lavillenie said: "Better to stay at home in front of your television than come and whistle. Rehearsing vaults on the run-up, he appeared on the stadium's big screens, to increased booing. He had misses at earlier heights, while world record holder Lavillenie was clean through 5.98m. The Olympic record put the 22-year-old Brazilian in gold-medal position, but Lavillenie still had a chance to win. The Olympics might resemble a celebration of youthful perfection, but sprinkled across a surprising variety of sports are veterans like Lange. There are over-40s in gymnastics and rowing, while equestrian events feature several over-50s, topped by the oldest competitor at these Games: 62-year-old New Zealand rider Julie Brougham. Officially he left for health reasons, but his departure was two days before he was due to face an ethics investigation into allegations he had taken bribes to funnel contracts to a marketing company.
Although it won only six this time - one fewer than the previous two Games - Britain only had entrants in nine of the 10 events, as the women's sprint team did not qualify.
The freakish injury not only cost the Cleveland Cavaliers a possible championship, but heaped more criticism on Irving, who played in just 11 games in college because of a foot injury and has battled assorted maladies during his career. He was called back by the referee to make the customary gesture but only gave a grudging nod before leaving. While Fabiana's kill saved one match point to make it 14-13 in the third, Brazil had a pair of costly late service errors. The Dutch volleyballers are in their first Olympics in 20 years and went 4-1 in group play behind the US.
The Americans will face Serbia, a straight-set winner over Russia, in Thursday's semifinals. The Americans have won their last three meetings on the Olympic stage, opening the 2008 Beijing Games with a four-set victory and sweeping Japan in a match at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.
Others may have them, but I don't," said Kiraly, the only person to win gold as a player in beach and indoor volleyball and looking to become the first as a coach and player. It marked the 27th overall for Team China since the sport's introduction at the 1988 Seoul Games.
Li Xiaoxia, now 28, could be as competitive at that time as she is right now, but no one can guarantee that. It's a result coming from the efforts of all China's coaches and players over the past decades," Kong said. Then we'll try to prolong the competitive lives of the core players of this current squad, like Li and Ding, while giving the youngsters more opportunities to play on the international stage.
Of course l love China, but to come back here with the team that I love to the place where I was born gives a lot of satisfaction," Azevedo said.
We've been waiting for an Olympic cycling medal for a very long time," he said after the race. At 18, after continuing to show promise, he relocated to Australia, where he continues to live.
Brazil is counting on him to follow up on his three world titles with at least one Olympic gold medal.
But Queiroz was more interested in soccer until he tried competitive canoeing when he was 11 as part of a government-funded social project, said Figueroa Conceicao, his childhood coach. As a toddler, he required emergency care after being scalded when a pot of hot water fell on him. By 2011, he was a junior world champion; two years later, he won the first of three world titles.
In several interviews with Brazilian media before the Games, he insisted his childhood was a happy one. Immediately after Deng finished his routine, You Hao ended China's competition in the men's events by completing his parallel bars dismount with a fall and finishing last. That effort, and his performance for Spain, convinced Real to exercise a buy-back clause written into his contract. The competition includes trail runs of 42 and 15 kilometers, as well as a 75km ultimate challenge.
And an NBC executive said last month the broadcaster sought a reality show-like narrative flow to its coverage to appeal to women not interested in sports. Kennedy International Airport cheering and loudly celebrating Usain Bolt's victory in Sunday's 100m final might have prompted unfounded reports of gunshots being fired.
Other police concerns in the village have been triggered by several break-ins and robberies, which Games officials have blamed on cleaning staff. Beijing newspaper The Mirror found that nearly 60 percent of them had been employed as officials by government departments.
In 2009, she was appointed a deputy secretary of the Beijing Municipal Committee of the Communist Youth League of China before being moved to the post of secretary-general of People's Daily. The lack of education in their early years should be made up," said Yang, who won China's first Winter Olympic gold medal in the women's 500m at the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Games. From becoming China's first Winter Olympics gold medalist (women's 500m at Salt Lake City 2002) to the country's first ex-athlete International Olympic Committee member, Yang spent eight years studying management and English while expanding her network in international sports federations.
He later reinvented himself to become China's first athletics entrepreneur who now runs a sports goods business empire.
He now runs the CBA club Shanghai Sharks, multiple businesses including a wine brand, and is a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee. She even announced the sale of dozens of her medals in 2007 when she was unemployed and needed money. Struggling to make a living, he was caught by police stealing property at a Beijing school dormitory in 2007. She also worked at a local public bathhouse giving female customers rubdowns after leaving the training base in 2000. Lavillenie greeted the jeers with a wagging finger and then a thumbs-down, to even more whistles.
It's the first time they've been against not only me but all the other pole vaulters except the Brazilian guy. Lavillenie raised the bar to 6.08m for one final attempt and, as he prepared, the crowd started booing him. His Nacra 17 catamaran, crewed by 29-year-old Cecilia Carranza Saroli, was leading the fleet ahead of Tuesday's medal race, meaning he had an excellent chance of boosting that haul.
Paddling on the lagoon in Rio, he is a confident young man with a gemstone gleaming in his left ear and tattoos covering his right shoulder.
After being released from detention, he tried to make money by performing acrobatic tricks in the streets of the capital. It's not every year it happens, and I think the crowd spoiled the experience for a lot of pole vaulters tonight. The Frenchman gave a thumbs-down signal to the crowd, went up for the last attempt, but failed.
