FIFA World Cup kicks off

British singer Robbie Williams and Brazil legend Ronaldo got the 2018 World Cup in Russia under way with the opening ceremony in Moscow.
 
Williams performed a series of his hits, joined by Russian soprano Aida Garifullina, prior to the hosts' opening 5-0 victory over Saudi Arabia.
 
Ronaldo dummied the opening kick, allowing a child to pass the ball to mascot Zabivaka.
 
Russian president Vladimir Putin then gave a speech at the Luzhniki Stadium.
