GUATEMALA CITY, Jan 12 (Reuters) - Guatemalan police said on Tuesday they have arrested fugitive former football federation president Brayan Jimenez in connection with a corruption probe into the sport's world governing body FIFA.

Guatemala's prosecutor's office had previously said it received an order from the foreign ministry to proceed with the extradition of Jimenez to the United States, and had released an arrest warrant for him.
