Brazil's iconic Maracana Stadium is to get a £175m facelift in preparation for the 2014 World Cup.
Here's the full story: news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/fro...
The stadium, which has seen many great moments, such as Uruguay's shock 2-1 victory over Brazil to win the 1950 World Cup, Pele's 1,000th career goal and 'that goal' by England's John Barnes in 1984.
It has undergone several changes over the years and can no longer hold anywhere near the 200,000 that crammed in for the 1950 final.
It's new capacity will be a more modest 82,000, but it still remains one of the most recognisable stadiums in the world.
