On Instagram, according to the AP, Rivaldo wrote, “Things are getting uglier here every day. I advise everyone with plans to visit Brazil for the Olympics in Rio — to stay home. You’ll be putting your life at risk here. This is without even speaking about the state of public hospitals and all the Brazilian political mess. Only God can change the situation in our Brazil.”
Not exactly a tourism commercial is it?
Crime, political instability and a potential viral epidemic. Is that enough risk to keep you away from the Olympics?
