Former England captain Gary Lineker says there is no question that "Fifa is at an all-time low" as a result of the crisis surrounding the bidding process for the 2022 World Cup.
The Match of the Day presenter describes the resignation of Fifa investigator Michael Garcia in protest over the handling of his report into bidding for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups as "a farce", and says that it is the football that make the World Cup a great event, not Fifa.
On Friday, the head of world football's governing body Sepp Blatter declared the crisis surrounding the organisation was over, after executives agreed to publish a "legally appropriate version" of the report.
