Heavy rain has damaged Russia’s newly-built World Cup Stadium at the Southern city of Volgograd on Sunday.

Footage of the incident showed a fresh landslide on an embankment, which made a several-metre-deep hole near the stadium and covered a sidewalk with mud.

A spokesman for the Sport In company, overseeing the construction, said there were also leaks inside the stadium which could take up to a week to repair.

“I’m sorry for the city. They invested so much money and it was washed away by one rain,” 19-year-old Vitaly Ovchinnikov, a local resident, told reporters.

Volgograd Arena, a stadium that can accommodate up to 45,000 spectators, was built for the World Cup at a cost over 16 billion roubles (194.20 million pounds).
