UEFA president Michel Platini looks set to avoid punishment for attending a football awards ceremony in Dubai even though he is banned from "all activity" within the sport.

Last week Platini was barred from football for eight years after being found guilty of receiving an improper payment of two million Swiss Francs (?1.36million) from FIFA president Sepp Blatter, who received the same punishment. Both men are appealing the decision.

In the meantime, Platini has been pictured attending the Globe Soccer Awards by the Dubai Sports Council.

When asked about the Frenchman's appearance at the awards ceremony, FIFA said its disciplinary committee was "monitoring the situation", but would not intervene "for the time being".
