Nyantakyi, one of African football’s most powerful figures, also broke conflict of interest rules, football governing, Fifa, said.

The body launched an investigation after Nyantakyi was pictured taking $65,000 (£48,000) from an undercover reporter.

Fifa also fined Nyantakyi, who was also vice-president of the Confederation of African Football and a member of the Fifa Council, $495,000.

Nyantakyi has said the footage had been doctored to falsely incriminate him.
