Christ the Redeemer float

A hot air balloon in the shape of Brazil's Christ the Redeemer statue flies over the Sydney skyline June 12, 2014. The balloon, measuring over 45 metres tall and built in Britain, flew over the Sydney skyline on Thursday to publicise an online sports betting agency, asking fans of Australia's national soccer team "Socceroos" to 'keep the faith' as they compete in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
