Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - Police have arrested an Irishman and his translator in an investigation into the illegal sales of Olympics tickets, of which some appear to have been fake, it was announced on Monday.

The man is one of the heads of British ticket and hospitality company THG which was also implicated in illegal ticket schemes around the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Police said he was arrested with fake tickets for the Rio Games and that some 1,000 tickets have been seized which were to be sold for some 3 million dollars.

Rio organizing committee spokesman Mario Andrada said his outfit will react once further information has been provided by the authorities.

Ticketing director Donovan Ferreti meanwhile said that 40 scalpers were arrested outside Olympic Park on Sunday.
