Emails allegedly support Brazil's case against Pat Hickey

Brazilian authorities investigating the Olympic ticket touting scandal have held another press conference in Rio.

At today's conference they presented emails which they allege further support their case that Pat Hickey was involved in ticket touting.

Prosecutors say the International Olympic Committee has not been cooperating with the investigation, despite the IOC saying that it is assisting authorities.

They also indicated that they wish to speak to other individuals as part of their inquiries, including IOC President Thomas Bach.

Earlier, prosecutor Marcos Kac said those accused of ticket touting could face sentences of eight to ten years if convicted.
