LIBREVILLE, Gabon (AP) -- The African Cup of Nations wound down Sunday as Gabon President Ali Bongo's mother sang for fans at the closing ceremony ahead of the final.
Patience Dabany performed the event's theme tune and performers ran across the field with the flags of the competing countries.
The president watched from the VIP section as his mother entertained the crowd before giant images of the African continent and Gaguie -- the tournament's gorilla mascot -- were projected onto the pitch. There was also fireworks and holograms.
FIFA President Sepp Blatter earlier presented a pennant to both host countries' presidents, Bongo of Gabon and Equatorial Guinea's Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.
Brazil great Pele was also at the stadium, where Ivory Coast was to play Zambia in the deciding game.
