There’s already been an anthem cock-up at the Olympics

Nigerian football team at Rio celebrating

The Olympics doesn’t officially start until tonight’s opening ceremony, but things are already going wrong – in anthem terms at least.

Last night, Nigeria beat Japan 5-4 in their opening match of the men’s football tournament (that’s them celebrating above). But beforehand they had the humiliation of being played Venezuela’s anthem rather than their own by mistake.

I’d love to show you a clip, but the IOC seems to have eliminated all traces of it from the internet so instead here are the two anthems. Decide for yourselves which is better.
