BBC Sport - Sepp Blatter: Russia 2018 World Cup 'agreed before vote'

World Cup vote 'agreed' - Blatter

Suspended Fifa president Sepp Blatter suggests there was an agreement in place for Russia to host the 2018 World Cup before the vote had taken place following a "discussion" in 2010.

He adds that a late swing in the voting gave Qatar the 2022 World Cup and undid a similar agreement to hand it to the USA.

Blatter is serving a 90-day ban from football alongside Uefa chief Michel Platini. Both deny doing anything wrong.
