Brazil's newest and most modern Joao Havelange stadium earned praise from Pan American Games organizers despite some minor infrastructure problems.
The stadium, which will host soccer matches and track and field in the June 13-29 Pan Ams, officially opened in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday with Botafogo beating Fluminense 2-1 in a Brazilian league match.
"The stadium earned a gold medal," Brazilian Olympic president Carlos Arthur Nuzman said. "It's a symbol of the games and a gift for fans in Rio and Brazil."
About 1,600 fighters of private military company (PMC) Wagner left the war zone in western Libya, Anadolu agency reports with reference to Mohammed Kununu, a representative of Libyan government forces.
According to him, PMC employees involved in the Libyan conflict on the side of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar departed from Beni Walid airport near Tripoli on board two military transport aircraft. Their destination remains unknown.
Dmitry Peskov, an official spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, was discharged from hospital.
"Yes, that's true," Peskov told reporters.
