The cursed Olympics? Freak 15-foot waves flood TV broadcasting building on Rio’s Copacabana...

... Beach sparking fears it could collapse into the sea. Freak 15-foot waves lashed Copacabana beach in Rio over the weekend.

However, the Brazilian ambassador to UK, Eduardo dos Santos told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that he was confident Rio was ready to host the Games. 

He said: 'The Games will be a great success. I can reassure that Rio de Janeiro is ready for the Games in all its aspects. People – athletes and visitors – are ready, they are coming in to Rio and we are welcoming all of them with open arms.’

And asked about the athletes’ accommodation, he added:'Well there have been some problems, it is not an easy task. It is a big challenge to organise particularly the first Olympic and Paralympic Games in South America, we feel honoured with that but we have to work hard and also work hard in cooperation, not only with those who organised the successful Games in London in 2012 but also international organisations - the International Olympic Committee, which is important and responsible for the Games, of course.'

2. I figure gangs capturing foreign visitors and athletes (most of whom are deathly sick from...

... the air and from the water), holding them for ransom while ISIS threatens to set off a dirty bomb, for some inexplicable reason...
