• Cabrera extradited to Argentina to face domestic violence charges


    Angel Cabrera was extradited on Tuesday from Brazil to his native Argentina to face domestic violence accusations brought by several women.

    Cabrera, who won the 2007 US Open and 2009 Masters, was arrested in Rio de Janeiro in January at Argentina’s request, accused of violence against his partner, an ex-partner and his ex-wife.

    Cabrera (51) and another Argentinian (42), who faces femicide charges, were handed over to Argentinian authorities at a border bridge in the city of Foz do Iguacu, Brazilian federal police said.

    The statement did not identify them, but a source close to the investigation told AFP one of the men was Cabrera.

    A Brazilian court authorised Cabrera’s extradition in May. He has denied wrongdoing.
