RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - The official World Cup countdown clock in Rio de Janeiro has stopped time.

Although there's less than 11 months before the 2014 World Cup begins, the clock set up by local organizers at Copacabana Beach still shows there are 365 days to go.

The Hublot clock has been stuck since the Pope arrived in Rio a few weeks ago, attracting millions of people for masses at the famed beach.

Local organizers said Thursday they are aware of the malfunction, and ``the company in charge of maintaining the clock will fix the technical problem soon.''

There have been widespread concerns with Brazil's readiness for the World Cup. The Confederations Cup held earlier this year was plagued by delays.
