RIO DE JANEIRO (AFP) – A 24-hour restaurant big enough to house jumbo jets, 450,000 condoms, a multi-faith worship centre and beds that extend to accommodate the lankiest of basketball players.
They are some of the attractions at the Rio Olympics athletes’ village, which will open its doors in a month’s time ahead of the August 5-21 Games.
There will be no televisions in the rooms as a result of the budget being chopped. Screens instead are set up inside communal areas.
