The Rio 2016 Olympic torch will begin its 95-day relay through more than 300 Brazilian cities on Tuesday as the final countdown begins for the first Games in South America.

Since being lit at the Games' birthplace in Olympia on April 21, the torch has traveled through parts of Greece and Switzerland - where it made brief stops at the United Nations office in Geneva and the Olympic museum in Lausanne.

It was due to arrive by plane in the capital Brasilia before midday, embarking on the first leg of its Brazil tour - a 105km relay around the Federal District in central Brazil.

In total, the torch will be carried for more than 19,000km in Brazil, passing through 26 state capitals.

The first Brazilian to carry the Rio 2016 flame was two-time Olympic volleyball champion Giovane Gavio, who represented the host nation at the flame-lighting ceremony in Olympia.
