The Qatari told AFP in an email that he had stepped down from the positions 10 days after the ethics committee of football’s world governing body FIFA, launched a new probe into corruption claims against him. 

Hammam is accused of trying to buy the result of a vote to the world governing body’s top job in 2011 and was banned by FIFA from all footballing activities. This ban was later overturned by the Lausanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in July.
