6:54 am on 26 December 2010

The IOC president Jacques Rogge says the Olympic movement should not delude itself about the dangers of illegal betting.

Despite the International Olympic Committee finding no evidence of corruption at the Vancouver Winter Games Rogge used his end-of-year message to stress the need to redouble efforts to safeguard the integrity of sport.

He says great progress has been made in the fight against doping and the IOC has to be vigilant against the corrupting influence of illegal betting.
