The UN Office on Drugs and Crime has released a report which sets out to provide a comprehensive look at corruption in sport, and reveals the staggering scale, manifestation, and complexity of corruption and criminal networks in sport at international and national levels.  It says that fraudulent activities in the running of sports institutions and competitions have been documented from the times of the Ancient Olympic Games.  It breaks down an extensive range of issues, analysing the role of illegal betting, competition manipulation, abuse in sport, and the susceptibility of major sporting events to corruption, and the involvement of organized crime, among others.
