Tom Cruise took time off from promoting his latest film in Brazil, met former football star Zico - and said David Beckham would be jealous.

Cruise posed for photos at Maracana Stadium 's newly-installed pitch, holding a Brazil jersey with his name on the back.

The actor said it "would be an honour" to make it to the 2014 World Cup final at the famed venue.

He received an autographed ball from Zico and said he would message his friend Beckham about the meeting, adding the former England captain would be "jealous".

The Maracana, which also hosted the 1950 World Cup final, is being renovated before next June's Confederations Cup, the warm-up tournament a year before football's showcase event.
