Relativistic particles are revealed in clusters of galaxies from observations of diffuse synchrotron radio emission. At least part of this emission can be originated by secondary electrons produced by cosmic-ray protons interacting with the protons of the intra-cluster medium. This should be accompanied by the production of gamma rays, potentially detectable by the Fermi satellite and Cherenkov telescopes, and neutrinos, potentially detectable by IceCube. I will present the latest constraints and predictions.
