Six high-ranking FIFA executives including the vice-president were arrested this morning during a dramatic dawn raid at a five-star hotel in Switzerland over allegations of widespread corruption involving bribes totalling more than £60m over the past 25 years.
More than a dozen plain-clothed Swiss police officers arrived unannounced at the Baur au Lac hotel in Zurich at around 6am before storming the rooms where senior officials from the world football's governing body were staying.
Members from the executive committee were then led away by police through the side exit of the hotel, with many using bedsheets to shield themselves from the public eye
