The world’s most famous statue of Jesus Christ was lit up with the Olympic logo and images of sporting arenas on Wednesday (April 14) to mark 100 days to the Tokyo Olympic Games’ opening ceremony.

 Hundreds of LED projectors were used to beam images onto the (30-metre Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, according to media reports.

The show began and ended with the statue seeming to wear Brazil jerseys in yellow and green, the country’s distinctive sporting colours, derived from its national flag.

Rio’s iconic statue of Christ with his arms outstretched is undergoing restoration ahead of the 90th anniversary of its completion in October.
