The former UEFA President Michel Platini has been detained in France as part of an investigation into the awarding of the 2022 World Cup to Qatar.
The French football legend was arrested this morning at the headquarters of French anti-corruption police in Nanterre outside Paris.
Mr Platini was UEFA president between 2007 and 2015.
He stepped down after he was handed a six-year ban from football for receiving a "disloyal payment" from ex-Fifa president Sepp Blatter.
That ban was later reduced to four years.
Qatar controversially won the rights to host the flagship competition a decade ago.
