Brazilian Tennis Player Banned for Life for Match Fixing

Brazilian tennis player Diego Matos has been banned from professional tennis for life and fined $125,000 (£100,600) after being convicted of multiple match-fixing offences.

Matos has also been ordered to repay $12,000 (£9,650) received in winnings in tournaments played in Ecuador.

An independent anti-corruption hearing found that 31-year-old Matos had contrived the outcome of 10 tennis matches played during 2018 at ITF level tournaments in Brazil, Sri Lanka, Ecuador, Portugal and Spain.
