Rio sweeper samba dances at Olympic closing ceremony

The Olympic closing ceremony has taken place in London, including Brazil's eight-minute section.

It featured the popular Renato Sorriso - seen here - a dancer and street cleaner who sweeps up between samba schools appearing at the Rio carnival.

Other Brazilian performers were diva Marisa Monte, model Alessandra Ambrosio, 82 drummers and the rapper Bnegao.

The artistic directors had said it would feature "pure samba" with roots in Brazilian percussion.
