Fifa announces corruption inquiry

Football's governing body has announced an investigation into the collapse of a former marketing partner will be carried out by an external committee.

Fifa president Sepp Blatter said documents relating to alleged kickbacks to Fifa officials for World Cup television and sponsorship right in the 1990s would also be released.

Mr Blatter also announced the creation of three task forces to help reform the organisation, which has been fraught by allegations of corruption.

David Bond reports.
