Extra Time for 22 January 2015

From Extra Time, 5:30 pm on 22 January 2016

In Extra Time for January 22... top tennis players are alleged to have thrown matches, as the sport joins athletics and football with a corruption scandal. We hear from everyone from Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer to former NZ No.1 Brett Steven, and one of the BBC reporters who worked on the story for six years, Simon Cox - who says the problem's only getting worse, and the authorities are trying to downplay the seriousness of the issue. Also, big changes at the New Zealand Breakers as the Australian basketball champions look to the future - but are they admitting this season's title defence is already a write-off as they change the coach and the big boss? Plus Auckland heavyweight boxer Joseph Parker fights in Samoa... Geraldine rally star Hayden Paddon and why he's driving the old Hyundai at the current World Rally Championship race in Monte Carlo... and cycling finds out its somewhat meagre allocation for the Rio Olympics.
