Brazil will become the first South American country to host the Olympics after the city of Rio de Janeiro was chosen to stage the 2016 Games. Rio won a majority of the 95 votes at the meeting in Copenhagen, eliminating Madrid in the final round. Tokyo and Chicago had already been knocked out.
"The world has recognised that the time has come for Brazil," said President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. A tearful President Lula told reporters afterwards: "The other countries made proposals. We presented a heart and a soul. "I confess to you if I die right now my life would have been worth it."
