Zurich: Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter will learn on Monday whether his appeal against a six-year ban from football has been successful, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) said yesterday.

Blatter is serving a ban over ethics violations relating to a suspect $2 million payment he authorised in 2011 to former UEFA boss Michel Platini.

The 80-year-old Swiss served as FIFA chief from 1998 to 2015. Both Blatter and Platini were originally banned for eight years, but that was reduced to six years in February.

The result of Blatter’s appeal will be made public at 1400 GMT on Monday. A CAS statement confirmed: “CAS will issue its decision in the arbitration procedure between Joseph S Blatter and FIFA at 3pm (Swiss time) on Monday.“
