Brazil's former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has surrendered to police to begin serving a 12-year sentence for corruption.

It follows a 2-day stand-off that saw him take refuge in a steelworkers' union building after missing a court deadline to hand himself in.

The 72-year-old walked out of the office in his hometown, near Sao Paolo, and was taken away by police cars.

Scores of supporters had earlier blocked his car from leaving the scene.
