Fifteen arrested in Spain amid tennis fixing allegations

15 people have been arrested by law enforcement officials in Spain as part of an investigation into match-fixing in tennis.

It is understood the investigation involves an Armenian criminal gang and Spain's Civil Guard said 83 people were implicated, among them 28 players from the ITF Futures and Challenger tours – one of which competed at the US Open.

EU police agency Europol said 11 house searches had been carried out in Spain in which 167,000 euros (£151,000) in cash were seized, along with a shotgun.

It added that more than 50 electronic devices, credit cards, five luxury vehicles and documentation related to the case were also seized. 42 bank accounts have also been frozen.

None of those investigated have been named.
