Olympic cycling cash claims

A key cycling event at the Olympic Games may have secured its place at the games for a payment of 1.5m - according to a BBC World Service investigation.

Documents seen by the BBC indicate that the money started to flow to cycling's world governing body just two months after the Japanese Keirin event was accepted as an Olympic sport.

Matt McGrath reports.
