MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Tuesday, media reported about ongoing French prosecutors' investigation into alleged corruption during 2016 and 2020 Olympic Games bidding process.

"We submitted a clean and well-organized bid. We won with a huge advantage over all other candidates at every round and in the end we won by 66 votes against [Madrid's] 32," Nuzman said as quoted by the local Record newspaper.

He added that the Brazilin side was not aware the French investigation.

"This [probe] is not our problem, we had a clean victory," Nuzman pointed out.
