Fifa vice-president Jim Boyce to return £16,000 watch gift

Fifa vice-president Jim Boyce is to return a £16,000 watch given to 65 delegates by the Brazilian Football Federation at a Fifa congress on the eve of the World Cup Finals in Brazil.

Boyce told the BBC that he only found the watch in a souvenir bag in his garage last week and will now return it.

Several officials had already returned their watches and informed Fifa's Ethics Committee, which prohibits such gifts.
