Fifa Secretary General Suspended
Fifa secretary general Jerome Valcke has been released from his duties and put on leave until further notice.
A Fifa statement said it had "been made aware of a series of allegations involving the secretary general".
Valcke, who has been Sepp Blatter's right-hand man since 2007, has been accused of being implicated in a profit-sharing scheme.
The scheme allegedly involved selling World Cup tickets at inflated prices.
