Five days from Rio kick off

It's just five days until the opening ceremony at the Rio Olympics kicks off.

Things are continuing to go wrong, particularly for the Australians; first, a fire at their athlete's village set hearts racing and then a Channel Nine news crew was almost robbed by a group of transvestites.

Now, there has been huge waves at Copacabana Beach which pose a serious risk to the beachside Olympic TV studio.

This is the third Summer Games for Olympics reporter Michelle Pickles, who touched down in Rio two days ago - and she joined Paul Henry this morning.
