Brazilian Police Seek to Question IOC President

Brazilian police say they want to speak to International Olympic Committee, IOC, president, Thomas Bach, about an alleged scheme to resell tickets during last month’s Rio Olympics.

Officers have found emails linking Mr Bach to another senior IOC official, Patrick Hickey, who is currently facing charges after being arrested last month.

Police investigators in Rio say would like to know what Bach’s influence was over Olympic ticketing policy, while assuring that he is being treated as a witness, and not a suspect

Bach has not returned to Rio since the Olympics, and he cancelled a planned appearance at the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games on Wednesday for personal reasons.
