Fifa bans over vote scandal

Fifa executive committee members Amos Adamu and Reynald Temarii have been banned from voting in the 2018 and 2022 World Cup hosting ballot.

Adamu was banned from football activity for three years and Temarii for one year over claims they asked for money in exchange for World Cup votes.

The Qatar and Spain-Portugal bids were cleared of colluding to swap votes.

The ballot will proceed on 2 December with 22 voters - instead of 24 - and nine candidates across the two votes.
