LONDON: Egypt's Youssef Hossam has been banned from professional tennis for life following his conviction on multiple match-fixing and associated corruption charges. The Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) said on Monday that an independent anti-corruption hearing officer imposed the lifetime sanction following a disciplinary hearing held in London from March 9 to 11. A TIU investigation found that the Hossam had committed 21 breaches of anti-corruption rules between 2015 and 2019 and conspired with others to carry out a campaign of betting-related corruption at the lower levels of professional tennis. It involved eight cases of match-fixing, six cases of facilitating gambling, two cases of soliciting other players not to use best efforts, three failures to report corrupt approaches and two failures to co-operate with a TIU investigation.
