Gisele Bündchen will stand in for Brazil's president Dilma Rousseff to present the FIFA World Cup trophy to the winning team at the official closing ceremony on 13 July.

The huge expense incurred – some eleven billion dollars, apparently – from hosting the tournament has caused Dilma to be the target of abuse; she was also jeered at the opening ceremony.

Gisele's husband, Tom Brady will reportedly join her at the event at the Maracana Mário Filho Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, which will also feature performances from Avicii, Carlos Santana and Wyclef.
