A record amount of people watched the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro than in any previous Olympics.
But the sporting events which dominated the headlines were also the most expensive.
The Games attracted a record $1.3bn in ticket sales for a total spend of $3.4bn.
The cost to the host nation was the most in the history of the Games.
This was despite the fact Rio de Janiero had just finished hosting the world championships.
The total cost to host the games was $2.2bn.
Here’s how the Games broke the record.
Rio’s Olympic bid bid cost £6.5bn ($9.4 billion) and the costs to host, operate and host the Games totalled £8bn ($12.3 billion).
This figure includes the cost of the venues, the venues themselves, the security costs, the host country’s infrastructure and so on.
The final bid price is likely to rise as more information is released about how the bidding process unfolded.
The bid cost $1,086bn ($2,049 billion) to host.
This figure does not include the costs of the stadiums, the facilities for the games and so forth.
The first bid came from Chinese firm Alibaba, who had invested in the Games earlier in the year.
In the run up to the Games, Alibaba invested $1bn ($1.1 billion) in Rio, including $1m ($1,000) in a bid to host Games day one.
The company said it would also pay $500m ($800,000] to cover costs related to the Paralympics.
That’s a figure which means the company paid for the cost to operate the Games on its behalf.
The $1billion figure does include the cost incurred by the Olympics organising committee, which includes the host nations Olympic Committee, the organising committee of the Paralymbics and other international organisations, as well as the cost borne by the International Olympic Committee.
The IOC has since said that it spent a total of $1 billion ($1 billion), including $900m ($918,000), to run the Games for more than a year.
It is worth noting that these figures are only for the Games bid and do not include any other costs, such as the price of tickets, which are set by the host countries Olympic Committee and host country officials.
There are a number of reasons why the bid cost exceeded the cost for previous Olympics bids.
The Olympics were held in a period when most sporting events were being held.
As a result, the costs were lower, which in turn means the costs for the host city can be higher.
And, of course, Rio was a global sporting event.
In addition, Rio had just hosted the Paralymics.
Rio was also the first Olympics to have a fully integrated Olympic programme.
In 2020, the IOC agreed to a new model of Olympic bidding which means a single bid will be used to organise all Olympic sports and events.
That means that the IOC will pay the hosting country’s bid costs, which include the host’s Olympic committee and the host government’s administration.
The host country will also receive the host state’s bid fee, which is an amount that is not refundable or tax deductible.
In 2018, the first bid was submitted by the Netherlands and the second bid was by China.
China’s bid cost was estimated at $8 billion ($13.8 billion) but the final bid was only $2bn ($3.2 billion).
China had also previously bid in 2018, when it was awarded the 2022 Winter Olympics.
The bids for the 2024 Summer Olympics were also both submitted by China and the Netherlands.
The Netherlands’ bid cost a staggering $10 billion ($16 billion).
The Dutch bid was for the 2022 Games.
In 2019, China submitted its bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics, which was also a bid of $10.5 billion ($12 billion).
But that bid did not get any votes.
The 2020 bid cost an estimated $11.6 billion ($14.2 million).
China’s 2020 bid was also bid for $10bn ($11.7 billion).
That was the biggest bid in the past 50 years.
The 2018 bid cost about $8.8bn (€8.5 million) and was the largest bid in more than 20 years.
This means that it will cost more than $16bn ($20 billion) when all the bids are factored in.
In 2017, China’s 2022 bid cost the most of any bid to date.
The Dutch had bid for a record amount.
The second highest bid was the $4.2-billion ($5.2.
billion) bid for 2020, which included $1-billion (€1.2m) of funding from the Japanese government and a bid by Germany.
This led to an agreement between China and Germany that saw the bid agreed to at a price of $4bn ($5 billion).
At the time, the bid was one of the most competitive in history, according to
