Tikteknu: today's summary clip in sports, 30.1 (Sport1)
Dani Alves is adapting to life in prison.
A former Barcelona footballer, one of the biggest stars in the world of football in the previous decade, has been in custody for several weeks on suspicion of club rape of a 23-year-old girl in a night club.
Although the detention center where he is kept tried to prevent leaks about his condition and demanded that nothing be reported to the media, in Spain things he said to local probation officers and inmates in prison are reported.
"I will accept whatever comes," he says, "nothing scares me."
Alves' representatives are trying to challenge the conditions of his arrest and request that he be released on bail, with the Brazilian "prepared to guarantee that he will not leave Barcelona and will remain in the city for as long as it takes until the trial begins", against the background of the fear that he will flee to Brazil.
He is willing to surrender his passport, put on an electronic bracelet, appear every day in court and do whatever is required, including depositing large sums of money as bail.
The shocking testimony and the detail that brought him down: the details of the rape of which Dani Alves is accused have been revealed

In the meantime, he is sitting in wing 13, next to prisoners accused of child abuse.
This morning (Monday) the newspaper "La Vanguardia" reports on things he said in internal conversations, which according to the newspaper "have been confirmed by several different sources".
Alves, who receives no special conditions at all in prison, says: "I will accept whatever comes my way. I left home at the age of 15. I have overcome difficulties and complicated situations all my life. This will be another obstacle I will have to overcome. Nothing scares me."
He continues to insist that the sexual relations he had with the girl in the night club "were fully consensual", according to him.
He continues to share a cell with Coutinho, who used to be Ronaldinho's bodyguard.
His lawyer, Cristóbal Martel, claims that the contradictions in Alves' testimony about the events of that night were "because he was afraid that it would be revealed in public that he cheated on his wife."
As I recall, at first he denied that he was even with the girl.
As mentioned, he does not get the best conditions because of being a famous athlete.
In an interview with a probation officer at the prison, he said in a calm, cool voice, without revealing much emotion: "Alves the footballer stays outside, the Dane who is here is just another prisoner."
At first he still refused to eat, but now he is also at meals with everyone, and his presence is already accepted naturally.
It was also reported that last Thursday he even participated in a soccer game with other inmates, in front of inmates from the nearby Wing 14 - those accused of rape and sexual offenses against male and female adults (with whom Elves has no contact).
Alves' mother arrived in Barcelona, after she was already seen bitterly crying and unable to hold back the tears in the media in Brazil.
Meanwhile, Alves refuses to meet her, since he doesn't want her to see him in prison.
