Photos from the Rio 2016 Paralympics opening ceremony

The 2016 Paralympic Games opened this morning in Rio de Janeiro to a backdrop of colour and music as thousands of performers were involved either side of the two-hour procession of competing countries at the Maracana.

The opening ceremony, though brilliant and colourful, was marred by a brief incident as Athletes supported Russia, banned from Games due to doping allegations, by carrying country’s flag during procession. More photos after the cut.
