PIC: This 2014 World Cup cartoon has proved to be eerily prophetic at the Rio Olympics
Brazil had barely finished hosting the 2014 World Cup before the preparations were well underway for this year's Olympics in the city of Rio.
One savvy Twitter user has, however, noticed a very strange and very sad overlap across the two major sporting events.
According to data from the World Bank, almost 20 million Brazilians live in poverty - something which stands out further when one contemplates the amount of money that Brazil has spent on hosting both the World Cup on the Olympics in the last few years.
At the time of the World Cup two years ago, many satirists, cartoonists and political commentators poignantly critiqued Brazil for hosting the tournament. One such cartoon featured a skinny young child in a torn Brazil jersey watching the opening ceremony take place in the stadium - from a favela many miles away.
A photo from Rio has emerged on social media in the last 24 hours reflecting this scene exactly - painting a picture of the disparity between rich and poor in Brazil.
