MADRID (Reuters) – The brother-in-law of Spain’s king has turned himself in to authorities to serve a five-year, 10-month prison sentence for crimes including tax fraud and embezzlement, a prison system spokesman said on Monday.

Inaki Urdangarin signed himself into the Brieva prison in Avila at around 8:00 am (7.00 a.m. BST). He had been given five-day deadline last Tuesday to appear at a penal institution of his choosing.
