Space-age stadium: Inside Marseille's new home

The Stade Velodrome is undergoing a complete makeover ahead of Euro 2016 and the initial work is a sight to behold
The new home of Olympique de Marseille is beginning to take shape as Stade Velodrome's €150 million [£125m] redevelopment continues.

The Nouveau Stade Velodrome, which is set to hold 80,000 spectators, is being constructed ahead of the Euro 2016 finals to be held in France.

While plenty of construction work in and around the site remains incomplete, the framework for the new ground - complete with a stunning undulating roof - is already an impressive sight, as these pictures below show.
