Rio de Janeiro: Brazil President Dilma Rousseff and FIFA President Sepp Blatter have been jeered and whistled by spectators before they presented the trophy at the World Cup final.

Whistling noises were heard from the stands at the Maracana Stadium when they were shown on giant screens after Germany's 1-0 win over Argentina.
