Australian tennis player Calum Puttergill has been banned for six months - three of which are suspended - after placing 291 bets on matches.

Puttergill, 1,207th in the rankings, has also been fined $5,000 (£4,115) and will pay a similar fine if he commits another offence before 11 July.

The matches took place between May 2012 and November 2014, but the 23-year-old was not playing in any of them.

An investigation found Puttergill used two online accounts to place the bets.
