The performance has been described by organizers as a high-tech production which is very different from previous traditionally African ceremonies that have opened the tournament.

Committee spokesman Jermaine Craig says that Sunday's show will be "more youthful and bit more technologically advanced." Special effects are said to also be involved.

For the World Cup concert in Soweta back on June 10, Shakira also performed the anthem that will be heard at the closing ceremony.
