Fifa official Amos Adamu denies vote selling

A Nigerian Fifa official has told the BBC he is not guilty of allegations that he offered to sell his vote in the contest to host the 2018 World Cup.

Reporters from the Sunday Times posed as lobbyists for a consortium of US firms who wanted to bring the tournament to the United States.

Amos Adamu allegedly said he wanted cash to build pitches in Nigeria.

Mr Adamu was suspended by the organisation for 30 days on Wednesday.

He told the BBC's Farayi Mungazi that he welcomed the Fifa investigation into the claims.
