With samba dancers, drumming and a heavy police presence, the Olympic torch landed in Rio on Wednesday morning amid signs that many in the city are finally beginning to succumb to the spirit of the games.
The good mood didn’t last long.
The day started with smiles and ended with police firing tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters in an outlying town. Along the way, a torch carrier bared his buttocks in a novel protest against Brazil’s unpopular interim president, Michel Temer.
