IOC says match-fixing hotline operational

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) The International Olympic Committee says its hotline for reporting match-fixing and other corruption is fully operational.

The web-based ''integrity and compliance hotline'' - which was announced in April - allows athletes, coaches, referees, and the public to report anonymously on suspicious activity related to match-fixing, and violations of the IOC ethics code.

IOC athletes commission chair Claudia Bokel says ''we now need to spread the word so everybody is aware of the hotline and can access it.''

The hotline is accessible on the IOC website at www.olympic.org/integrityhotline .
