Fifa has banned former executive committee member and ex-CONCACAF general secretary Chuck Blazer from all football related activity for life.

FIFA’s ethics panel made its ruling today using evidence from the American federal case which has plunged FIFA and international football into crisis.

The 70 year old, worked undercover with prosecutors in the US after pleading guilty to charges of bribery, money laundering and tax evasion.

According to BBC Sports, Blazer had admitted that he and others on Fifa’s executive committee agreed to accept bribes in connection with the choice of South Africa as 2010 World Cup hosts.
