FIFA has removed the word 'corruption' from its latest code of ethics

Football officials and players will find the word "corruption" missing from the latest version of the code of ethics governing their conduct.

But in two years as FIFA president, Mr Infantino has been accused of violating governance rules and forcing out officials who threatened his position.

A new offence has been introduced in the ethics code — defamation.

But section 12.1 of the new code states: "Bribery, misappropriation of funds and manipulation of football matches or competitions may no longer be prosecuted after a lapse of 10 years."

Additionally, the code now states that ethics prosecutors have five years to complete cases into other general breaches of the code — half the previous time permitted to uncover wrongdoing.
