London: Police have made six arrests as part of an investigation into a suspected international betting syndicate which allegedly fixed English football matches, authorities said on Wednesday.

The arrests follow an undercover investigation by Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper, which reported that at least three of the men held this week are footballers.

The paper said the alleged fixer who was arrested on Tuesday is "internationally known" and arrived in England last week.
