LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — The IOC has told Olympic bodies in four countries to discipline top officials after a British newspaper's sting alleged they offered to supply London Games tickets to the black market.

The IOC says Greek Olympic president Spyros Capralos breached its code of conduct and, with his privileged position, caused "even greater damage to the Olympic Movement."

Another national Olympic president, three secretary generals and a head of marketing were identified from four countries: Greece, Lithuania, Malta and Serbia.

An IOC ethics probe ruled they "helped tarnish the reputation" of the Olympics.

IOC spokesman Mark Adams says the countries must take "appropriate measures" against their officials or the IOC will take further action.

IOC ethics rules allow it to directly sanction National Olympic Committees but not individuals.
