Haunting photos show how eerie the Rio Olympic venues look just 6 months after the Games

In August last year, the world was treated to a magnificent display of sporting action at the Rio Olympics.

Not wanting do disappoint, Brazil pulled out all the stops to make sure that the event venues were nothing short of perfect for both athletes and fans.

Bored Panda has compiled a series of photos showing how some of the Olympic venues look six months after the Games.

Based on the images, the stadiums, halls and indoor pools are now a far cry from what they looked like during the Olympics.

In fact, most of them look more like settings for horror flicks rather than a place to host sporting events.

Have a look at the photos in the gallery above.
