    Breaking story: The PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi is also head of Bein Sports TV and Swiss authorities have opened a criminal investigation into bribes that they believe were paid by Bein to Jerome Valcke of FIFA. These were allegedly to secure broadcasting rights for World Cup games.

    Wow.

    Oh dear.

    Wonder what the punishment would be if found guilty?

    Pretty big news that given his position, although allegations of bribery involving the World Cup bidding process not exactly a surprise.

    Read David Conn's book on FIFA's little local difficulties recently, which was fascinating. The bribes that ISL, the marketing company set up by Horst Dassler, paid to FIFA virtually bankrupted them.

    The Americans don't though, and have been putting serious pressure on the Swiss to clean up their act, or they'll do it for them.

    He's busy sorting out false identities for his mates Gray & Keys so they can go on the lam.
