Sandro Rosell was Barcelona president from 2010 to 2014

Former Barcelona president Sandro Rosell has been arrested as part of a money-laundering investigation.

A number of other people were also held as police raided nine offices and homes in north-eastern Catalonia.

The arrests are part of an investigation into rights sales relating to Brazil, police sources say.

Rosell was Barca president from 2010 to 2014, when he resigned following a Spanish court's decision to investigate the 2013 signing of Brazilian Neymar.

In June 2016, Barcelona paid a fine of 5.5m euros (£4.7m) over the 24-year-old's move from Santos. The club was accused of tax fraud, which it denied.

Rosell's wife was among those also arrested on Tuesday.
