The suspended Brazilian President, Dilma Rousseff, says she will not attend the opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics because she does not want to take a secondary position in the Maracana stadium.

A spokesman for the interim President, Michel Temer, said she would have been placed in the stand below him and not at his side.

Ms Rousseff however insists she still has to be treated as president at the Olympics despite having been suspended in as impeachment trial. The Rio Olympic Games kick off in less than two week.
