Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro led a massive motorcade and attended a gathering of his supporters in Minas Gerais on Friday, two days ahead of the first round of presidential elections.

Bolsonaro arrived in the municipality of Pocos de Caldas around 9:30 local time (12:30 GMT) and took part in a motorbike that travelled through the streets of the central region and some neighbourhoods of the city.

Later, he stopped at a gathering of his supporters, who were chanting slogans in support of his campaign.

Recent opinion polls have shown Lula widening the gap ahead of Bolsonaro, with 46 per cent of the vote compared to his rival’s 33 per cent. Candidates need 50 per cent in the first round on Sunday to avoid a run-off.
