The issue of corruption in sport is "not something new" but it has become more visible over the past years because of the increasingly large amounts of money which are often involved.

That's according to Ronan O’Laoire, a crime prevention and criminal justice officer at the United Nations' Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

Ever-larger investments in sports events and athletes have led to an increase in illegal practices such as match fixing.

UNODC and the International Centre for Sport Security (ICSS) have issued a new resource guide that will help law enforcement and sports organizations better detect and investigate match-fixing and corruption.

Deganit Perez asked Mr O’Laoire to explain why match fixing is an international issue.
