Qatar 2022: World Cup might be held in winter

European Club Association vice-chairman Umberto Gandini says the 2022 Winter Olympics may have to be rescheduled to accommodate football's World Cup in Qatar.

It is expected that the World Cup will be moved from summer to winter in 2022 to avoid high temperatures in Qatar.

Speaking to BBC sports editor Dan Roan, Gandini says it would make sense to move the World Cup to February rather than November.
