The first case of a baby born with microcephaly birth defect linked to the Zika virus has been born in Europe.

The woman who is believed to have contracted the disease in Columbia when she was 13 weeks pregnant was diagnosed with the virus in May but decided to keep the baby and it was born today in Barcelona.

The baby was born via cesarean section.

This Zika birth comes just weeks before the Olympic Games commences in Brazil, where the virus originated.
