Brazilian police claim a British man arrested as part of an investigation into World Cup ticket touting has fled officers coming to re-arrest him at his Rio hotel.
Ray Whelan is alleged to have been involved in selling on tickets to games at hugely inflated prices.
However his legal team reject the accusations and his company, MATCH, say he will be cleared.
They have also issued a statement rejecting police claims that Whelan is a "fugitive".
