Brazil's new football hero: Marta not Neymar
The Rio 2016 Olympics are providing the world with new sporting heroes. Brazil's poster boy for football, Neymar, faces being dethroned by his female counterpart, Marta.
The success of the Brazilian women's football team has inspired fans to re-think the previous focus on male dominance in the sport.
Helped by the ingenuity of a 12-year-old football fan, BBC Monitoring takes a closer look at the country's new hero.
