VIDEO: Rio 2016: The empty seats issue clouding the Olympics

The problem of empty seats at RIo 2016 continues to plague organisers. People with double-header tickets have turned up late or not come at all, and Rio 2016 has been unable to reallocate the seats to local children, as it had hoped. At London 2012 there was hardly a spare seat in the house. So do the figures suggest the Brazilians are staying away from the sport?
