A report into ticketing arrangements for the Olympic Games in Rio will be sealed and sent directly to a judge, it emerged last night.

The Grant Thornton report into the scandal will go to Judge Carroll Moran, who is conducting a non-statutory inquiry into the controversy.

A statement by Olympic Council of Ireland (OCI) acting president Willie O'Brien said: "At no point has the executive committee had sight of the report."

It was expected that the report would be with the judge by November 15.

There had been previous concerns that the judge's work could be delayed, as the Grant Thornton report was expected back by October 10.

Meanwhile, a separate Deloitte report into corporate governance at the OCI will be reviewed by members for "factual accuracies" over the coming days.

The committee met for nearly four hours at OCI headquarters in Howth. However, members refused to take any questions at its conclusion.

It has been a turbulent week with resignations from the board by John Delaney and Kevin Kilty.

In its statement, the board said the Deloitte report was first circulated to members last night.
