The head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, has prayed in front of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

His tour of Latin America began last week, with a historic meeting with Pope Francis in Cuba.

He arrived in Brazil after visiting Paraguay and a Russian scientific base in the Antarctica.

From Rio, he travelled to Sao Paulo and held mass at a Russian Orthodox church, in the last stop of his visit.
