On Wednesday, the Swiss authorities raided a luxury hotel on Lake Zurich where Fifa's top executives had gathered ahead of the football governing body's presidential election on Friday, where president Sepp Blatter was expected to be elected for a fifth term.

Seven were arrested following an extradition request from US prosecutors, while former executive Jack Warner handed himself in to police in Trinidad and Tobago.

A separate criminal investigation was also launched by the Swiss authorities themselves, into the decisions to allocate the 2018 and 2022 Fifa World Cups to Russia and Qatar respectively.

It is thought 10 Fifa officials involved in voting for those tournaments are being questioned, while prosecutors have not ruled out speaking to Mr Blatter himself.
