The official World Cup countdown clock in Rio de Janeiro has stopped in time.

Although there are less than 11 months to go before the 2014 World Cup begins, the clock set up by local organisers at Copacabana Beach still shows there are 365 days to go before football's showcase event.

The Hublot clock has been stuck since the Pope arrived in Rio a few weeks ago, attracting millions of people for masses at the famed beach.

Local organisers said in a statement yesterday they’re aware of the malfunction, and that "the company in charge of maintaining the clock will fix the technical problem soon".

There have been widespread concerns with Brazil's readiness for the World Cup. The preparations for the Confederations Cup earlier this year were plagued by delays.
