Fifa president Sepp Blatter and Uefa boss Michel Platini have been suspended for eight years from all football-related activities following an ethics investigation.
They were found guilty of breaches surrounding a $ 2million “disloyal payment” made to Platini in 2011. They denied any wrongdoing.
The bans come into force immediately.

Both claimed the payment was honouring an agreement made in 1998 for work carried out between 1998 and 2002 when Platini worked as a technical adviser for Blatter.
Both men who have also been fined, had been suspended for 90 days in October while an investigation was carried out into a 2 million Swiss franc ($2.02 million) payment by FIFA to Platini in 2011.

Fifa boss since 1998, Blatter, 79, had already announced he was quitting ahead of February’s presidential election.
Platini, 60, was tipped as a future leader of football’s world governing body and had hoped to succeed Blatter.

Blatter must pay $40,000 while Platini $80,000.
