Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma received a hostile reception when he walked onto the pitch at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Wednesday evening.

Jeers and boos rang out as Zuma's name was called out and he walked to the field for the post-match ceremony following the international friendly between Bafana Bafana and Brazil.

Brazil won the match 5-0.

Zuma was handing over the hosting of the Fifa World Cup to Brazil, who are the host nation for the 2014 edition later this year.

Zuma was joined on a stage by Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula, SA Football Association President Danny Jordaan as well as several Brazilian dignitaries, who received a commemorative plaque marking the event.

Zuma was famously booed at the memorial service of former president Nelson Mandela, at the same venue, in December last year.
