Scotland Yard said Mr Assange was arrested by appointment at a London police station at 0930 GMT.
Mr Assange is due to appear at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court later.
If the district judge rules there is a prima facie case to be answered by Mr Assange, and the arrest warrant is legally correct, he could be extradited to Sweden. Following his arrest, Mr Assange will be brought before a court as soon as possible. That may be on Tuesday afternoon. If the court is satisfied the arrest warrant is valid, a date will be set for a full hearing, which is not likely to take place for some weeks
