    Former Olympic swimmer and swimming coach João Reinaldo Costa Lima Neto, aged 69, took a tumble as he carried the Olympic torch through the streets of Recife, Brazil.

    The torch guardians helped the participant of the 1968 Olympics to stand, and he continued on his route. The fire of the torch was not affected by the stumble.
