BRASILIA (Reuters) – All Olympics infrastructure in Rio de Janeiro will be ready before the Games start in August, including a much-delayed metro line, newly appointed Sport Minister Leonardo Picciani said in an interview on Wednesday.

Picciani was appointed by interim President Michel Temer, who took over last week from President Dilma Rousseff after she was suspended to face trial for allegedly breaking budget rules.
