FIFA was plunged into crisis on Wednesday morning after Swiss authorities made early-morning arrests of a number of football officials.

Officers swooped on the five star Baur au Lac hotel in Zurich and arrested a number of officials, including FIFA vice-president Jeffrey Webb from the Cayman Islands, Press Association Sport understands.

The New York Times has reported that charges include wire fraud, racketeering and money laundering, and that the United States Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch is due to hold a news conference later on Wednesday.
