Former Brazilian President Luis Inácio Lula da Silva has said he will give himself up after a court order to begin a 12-year jail term for corruption. He was speaking on a stage outside the union building near Sao Paulo where he has been staying during his stand-off with the legal authorities.Two last-minute appeals to have his arrest warrant suspended have failed. Dilma Rousseff, his impeached successor as president, joined him on the stage as thousands of supporters applauded.
