Police on Thursday arrested the 41 year old man at a boxing gym in the city in Jomtien. 

Police swooped after receiving a tip off that a foreigner had been employed illegally to teach boxing classes. 

An officer was sent undercover to attend one of the classes the Russian man was alleged to have been teaching.

Police say that as well as working without a work permit, the man was on a four year overstay and entered Thailand illegally.

The man, who denied all charges, was arrested and is being held pending further legal proceedings.
