Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter was paid a total of 3.63million Swiss Francs (?2.6m) in 2015, it was confirmed in the world governing body's financial report published on Thursday.

Blatter, 80, had been in FIFA's top job since 1998 until he was forced to resign amid a corruption scandal which engulfed the organisation. The Swiss is now appealing against a six-year ban imposed following breaches relating to a payment to former head of UEFA Michel Platini.

Following reforms voted in at the FIFA's extraordinary congress in Zurich last month, the governing body has now moved to make public it accounts for the first time.
