Former Olympic athlete Sebastian Coe has been appointed the first chairman of Fifa’s new independent watchdog.
Lord Coe, chairman of the London 2012 Olympics and a double Olympic champion, has agreed to head the Fifa’s ethics commission.
The commission will judge all cases alleging conflicts of interest and breaches of Fifa rules.
Fifa president Sepp Blatter said: “It is perhaps a surprise but it has been very well received.
“We have found an outstanding personality in the world of sport, a great personality in the Olympic movement.”
