Two Argentine businessmen wanted in the United States in connection with a Fifa bribery case have turned themselves in to authorities.

The official news agency Telam reported that Hugo Jinkis and son Mariano presented themselves at a federal courthouse in Buenos Aires.

Telam reported that the men and their lawyers stated their intention to fight a US extradition order and requested house arrest rather than jail while they do so.

US prosecutors say that the men were part of a multimillion-dollar bribery scheme for the rights to broadcast Copa America games.
