Brazil beats Belgium to claim Olympic bronze

Jo scored two goals and Diego added a third Friday to lead Brazil over Belgium 3-0 for the bronze medal in men's football.
Diego scored in the 27th minute when he darted in front of defender Tom de Mul and knocked a cross from Rafinha past Belgium goalkeeper Logan Bailly.
Jo added the second just before halftime, heading in a deflection after Bailly blocked a blast from Ramires from 10 meters (yards) out. The lanky striker then added an injury-time goal to finish off the scoring.
Led by two-time FIFA player of the year Ronaldinho, Brazil arrived in China on a quest to win its first Olympic gold medal in football, but lost to rival Argentina in the semifinals.
