Several Australian Olympic athletes have been arrested in Rio.
Reports have surfaced the athletes were arrested for allegedly tampering with their accreditation after attending the basketball semi-finals.
Australian team media boss Mike Tancred confirmed in a News Corp report nine athletes were being talked to.
"Some people tried to tamper with their accreditation," Tancred said. "They’ve got stopped by people over at the stadium."
"It’s really a matter for the IOC as they’re in charge of accreditations. If you tamper with accreditations it is their problem.
"We’re over there with the lawyer."
