Qatar World Cup: Fifa's Boyce 'would support' re-vote

Fifa vice-president Jim Boyce says he would support a re-vote to find a new host for the Qatar World Cup in 2022 if corruption allegations can be proven.

Boyce, one of eight vice-presidents of world football's governing body, told BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek programme: "I, certainly as a member of the executive club, would have absolutely no problem whatsoever if the recommendation was for a re-vote."

His comments follow allegations in The Sunday Times that Fifa officials accepted payments, totalling £3m, in return for support of the Qatari bid.

Fifa's chief investigator Michael Garcia is already conducting a long-running inquiry into the allegations.
