Police have smashed a criminal network suspected of fixing 380 football matches, including in the Champions League and World Cup qualifiers, Europol announced on Monday.

"It is clear to us that this is the biggest investigation ever into suspected match fixing," Europol chief Rob Wainwright told journalists, saying 425 referees, players and other officials were suspected of involvement.
