Supermodel Gisele Bundchen will be 'robbed' and 'assaulted' during the opening ceremony for the Rio Olympics later this week.

Several reports from Brazil suggest the high-profile model, who is married to American Football star Tom Brady, will be mugged by an actor as she walks down the runway in a brutally honest reflection of life in Rio de Janeiro.

Details emerged after 3,000 guests attended a test run of the event which is expected to be watched by 900 million people globally on Friday night.

According to Brazil's UOL Ms Bundchen is involved in an unusual segment.

Guests said that  during a section on the urbanisation of Brazil, spectators will hear a song describing Brazil's high number of road accident victims.

Then, as Gisele, the world's highest paid supermodel and one of Brazil's most famous stars, struts down a catwalk to the sound of The Girl From Ipanema, she is held up by an actor and robbed, according to internet posts.

A chase then takes place around the 78,000-seater Maracana stadium as police officers race to catch the assailant before she shows that good will prevail, according to reports.
