Winter Olympics illegal gambling crackdown by Gambling Commission

Alderney's Gambling Commission has brokered a deal to exchange suspicious gambling patterns with the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) comes ahead of the Winter Olympics.

The deal is part an effort to crack down on illegal gambling.

An IOC spokesman said the partnership "protects major competitions from any form of manipulation, particularly those linked to betting".

The Commission's executive director André Wilsenach said: "This MoU enables the IOC and the Commission rapidly communicate any concerns relating to the integrity of betting on Olympic events."
