FAI CHIEF John Delaney has been lying low in the luxury home of former RTE star Grainne Seoige, as calls for him to answer questions in relation the Rio ticket tout scandal intensify.

Delaney, who is vice president of the Olympic Council of Ireland, and partner Emma English began renting out the palatial pad in north Wicklow from Seoige late last year – in a development that staved off efforts by KBC to repossess the €1m property from Seoige.
