South Korean prosecutors said Tuesday they were investigating a professional basketball coach for alleged match-fixing, following similar scandals in domestic football and volleyball leagues.
"The investigation is underway," a spokesman from the prosecutors' office in Uijeongbu city near Seoul, told AFP. He declined to elaborate.
The coach, whose name was not revealed, allegedly received some 30 million won ($27,500) from a gambler about two years ago and rigged games by substituting key players, Yonhap news agency and other media outlets said.
