UEFA president Michel Platini's ban from football has been reduced from six years to four years by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Platini and former FIFA president Sepp Blatter were initially given eight years by world football's governing body over a two million Swiss francs payment, worth ?1.25m then, made by Blatter to Platini in 2011.

That December ruling was reduced to six years by a FIFA appeal panel in February and has now been reduced again by CAS, but the Lausanne-based court has backed FIFA's judgement that the payment was "unfair" and a "conflict of interests".
