With the FIFA World Cup coming to an end on Sunday (July 13) when Germany and Argentina battle for the trophy, Dilma Rousseff is ready to turn her full attention to the Games.

She met today with International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach in Brasilia as they looked ahead to the 17 days of Olympic competition, which gets underway in just over two years' time.

"Brazil and Brazilians can be proud," Bach said after the meeting.

"I was pleased to hear the confidence President Rousseff has in the Games and what they will deliver, and it was good to hear that the Games and their legacy will be a top priority.

"The IOC will contribute $1.5 billion (£876 million /€1.1 billion) to the Games, which will leave a huge sporting, economic and social legacy."

He added the Olympic Games would benefit from the "passion and efficiency" of the Brazilian people.

Bach and Rousseff also talked about the sporting legacy that Rio 2016 will leave for elite and grassroots athletes, with the creation of the Olympic Training Centre in Barra - the first of its kind in South America - highlighted.

The centre, for young athletes across the continent, will be a home for the development of coaching, athlete education and sports science.

Bach began his visit to Brazil yesterday by addressing Brazilian athletes preparing to compete in Rio 2016 at the headquarters of the Brazilian Olympic Committee in Rio de Janeiro.

He also met FIFA President Sepp Blatter and visited the Olympic Village, which officials say is almost 40 per cent complete.

Bach was joined on the visit by IOC Coordination Commission Chair Nawal El Moutawakel, President of the Rio 2016 Organising Committee and IOC honorary member Carlos Nuzman, and Rio 2016 chief executive Sidney Levy.

After his meeting with Rousseff today, Bach returned to Rio to meet with the city's Mayor Eduardo Paes and Governor of the State of Rio de Janeiro Luiz Fernando Pezão.
