Ukrainian tennis twins Gleb and Vadim Alekseenko have received a life ban from tennis for life and each fined $250,000 (£190,018) after they were found guilty of match fixing.
The pair were involved in multiple match-fixing offences at a number of ITF Futures tournaments between June 2015 and January 2016.
This is part of an ongoing investigation case by the Tennis Integrity Unit into the high cases of match fixing and corruption in the sport.
The match-fixing offences occurred at tournaments in Romania, Russia, Germany and Turkey on the Futures tour, tennis’ third-tier of tournaments.
Earlier this month, three Thai umpires were banned after their involvement in match fixing.
