No life ban for Hammam: Court

The Court of Abitration for Sport yesterday overturned a life ban imposed by football’s world governing body FIFA against Qatar’s Mohamed Bin Hammam, citing “insufficient evidence” to impose the penalty.

But a three-member panel who considered the case stopped short of exonerating the 63-year-old, who was accused of offering cash bribes to buy FIFA delegate votes during campaigning to unseat long-standing president Sepp Blatter last year.
