Carlos Nuzman has sent his resignation letter as head of the Brazilian Olympic Committee from prison.

Nuzman has been held since last week amid an investigation into a vote-buying scheme to bring the 2016 Olympics to Rio de Janeiro.

The national Olympic committee on Wednesday designated vice president Paulo Wanderley to replace Nuzman, who had headed the BOC for 22 years.

Wanderley will serve the three years remaining on Nuzman's term, and described the former chief's resignation as 'a relief.'

Nuzman had already been suspended by the International Olympic Committee, where he was an honorary member.

Wanderley says 'all of us were taken by surprise' by Nuzman's arrest and allegations he helped channel at least $2 million to Lamine Diack, a former IOC member from Senegal. He called the politics of the body 'broken' but said the sporting mission was 'solid.'
