Rio de Janeiro will benefit from hosting the Olympic Games, the president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Thomas Bach said as Brazil struggles to cope with its worst recession in decades.

"If you look at the new port, if you look at the new hotels and shops which have been created and will be created by this enhancement of the tourism industry," said Bach, who was speaking at the unveiling ceremony of the 2016 Olympic medals.

"I think you can really say there will be a much better Rio de Janeiro after the Olympic Games."
