The loud blast was heard for several streets over after bomb squad officers blew up a package which had been spotted close to the spot where Britain’s Chris Froome could soon take the gold medal, The Mirror reports.

According to reports in Brazil, officers swooped on the unattended package just yards from the finish line.

Brazil has boosted its anti-terror squads ahead of the Olympics with more than 14,000 security officials being deployed as part of an 85,000-strong army.

There have already been at least two security alerts since the games opened last night.

There is a heavy security presence throughout the city amid worries about safety as the Olympics begin.

There have been several bomb scares in the city the last couple weeks. A few blocks of the high end neighborhood of Leblon were shut down two weeks ago when a doorman reported a suspicious package in front of a building.
