Police lawyer Trond Laxelfog in Nordland Police District says Dagbladet Tuesday morning they received the video.

– There are a lot of people we want to talk to who are in Roma right now, so it’s likely that we only talk to them after the game. In the end we have to decide if we want to interrogate someone from Rome as well, but it takes longer.
Bodø/Glimt’s general manager, Frode Thomassen, says the video was sent as part of the evidence after Knutsen’s comment on Monday.
