A Brazilian construction worker has died after falling 8 metres at the Sao Paulo stadium where the football World Cup is due to start on June 12th.

The man suffered fatal injuries when he fell from a stand while installing temporary seats at the Sao Paulo Arena.

His death is the third fatality at the new stadium.

In November, two workers were killed when a crane collapsed.

Brazil's preparations for the World Cup have been marred by accidents and missed deadlines.

A total of eight men have already died working in World Cup stadiums.
