Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini have both been banned for eight years from all football activity by FIFA's ethics committee.

The bans have been imposed by FIFA's ethics committee judge Hans-Joachim Eckert for a "disloyal payment" of 2million Swiss francs (?1.3million) to Platini, signed off by Blatter.

Blatter has also been fined 50,000 Swiss francs (?33,700) and Platini 80,000 Swiss francs (?54,000) after being found guilty of ethics code breaches including conflict of interest.
