MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Briton Daniel Dobson, who was arrested at the Australian Open on Tuesday for "conduct that would corrupt a betting outcome", had his case adjourned until January 23 at Melbourne Magistrates Court on Thursday, local media reported.

Dobson, 22, was arrested on court two at Melbourne Park and discovered to have a device in his shorts which would enable him to transmit the results of points before they were officially distributed around the world, the court heard.

Dobson's lawyer Sass Nasimi said his client was simply collecting data to protect a betting agency from fluctuating odds, according to an Australian Associated Press (AAP) report.

Police made the arrest with the help of new legislation targeting sports-related corruption in Victoria state, where the tournament is held.

Prosecutors told the court that police were investigating two other British men in relation to the same offence.
