Coleen Rooney has visited one of the world's most iconic landmarks while in Brazil for the World Cup.

Although England are pretty much out of this year's tournament, Coleen has made the most of her time in South America by doing some sightseeing.

Yesterday, the mum-of-two headed off to see the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer, which is located on top of Corcovado Mountain in Rio de Janeiro.

Coleen is a practicing Roman Catholic, so the visit had special significance to her, and she took a selfie while standing underneath it.

Sharing the picture on Twitter, she said: "Christ the Redeemer #brazil."

Meanwhile, 28-year-old Coleen also posted a stunning photograph taken just as the sun set over Rio.

Last week, Coleen and her sons, Kai and Klay, landed in Brazil to watch husband and dad Wayne taken on Uruguay with his England teammates.

Unfortunately England lost and, despite having their third and final game tomorrow, do not have enough points to continue through to the next round of the World Cup.

Wayne did however score a goal in last Thursday's match and Coleen and her sons were in the stands to see it. She later tweeted: "Gutted with the score, but so pleased @WayneRooney scored and his boys were here to see it!!"
