Bin Hammam provisionally suspended by FIFA

9:24 am on 27 July 2012

The former FIFA presidential candidate Mohamed Bin Hammam has been provisionally suspended by football's governing body only a week after his life ban for bribery was overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

FIFA says that Bin Hammam will be banned for 90 days while its ethics committee collects further evidence over allegations that he tried to bribe Caribbean officials in the run-up to last year's FIFA election.

It will also investigate allegations of financial wrongdoing while he was head of the Asian Football Confederation.
