A Brazilian judge has ordered that the former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva turn himself in to police by late afternoon today to begin serving a 12-year sentence for corruption.
Earlier yesterday, the Supreme Court ruled against Lula's plea to remain free while he appealed against his conviction.
Lula claims the charges are politically motivated, and designed to prevent him from running for president in October.
He had been the favourite to win.
