Ancient Greek stadium lit in Brazil colors

An ancient Greek stadium was illuminated on Thursday in Brazil colors, one day before the start of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

The colors green and yellow were seen in part of the refurbished ancient stadium in Athens, where the first modern Olympics were held in 1896.

The all-marble stadium was used in the 2004 Games in Athens for archery and the Marathon finish.

The Olympic Games kick off in Rio on Friday, from August 5 to 21.
