'Work-shy doctor played tennis during hospital hours' (ANSA) - Bergamo, November 2 - A public-health doctor filmed played tennis during hospital work hours was cited Friday for allegedly defrauding the State in this northern Italian city.

The man, who has not been named, allegedly avoided controls by filling out permits rather than using his hospital-exit badge.

Tax police filmed his tennis matches, "which sometimes went on for hours," they said.

Meanwhile in Reggio Calabria four doctors were cited for profiting from a non-existent medical company.
