Former FIFA Executive Committee member Manilal Fernando has lost his appeal to have a lifetime ban overturned. The Court of Arbitration for Sport has upheld Manilal Fernando's lifetime ban after the former FIFA Executive Committee member lost his appeal yesterday.

FIFA imposed a life ban on Fernando in 2013 after the Sri Lankan - a close ally of Qatari football administrator Mohamed bin Hammam - appealed against his initial eight-year suspension for multiple ethics violations, including bribery, conflicts of interest and accepting gifts.
