Swiss justice officials say they have received a formal request from the United States to extradite seven Fifa officials arrested in Zurich last month.

The Federal Office of Justice said the requests were received yesterday, within a deadline required by a bilateral treaty.

They are based on a US probe into alleged bribery worth more than 100 million dollars (£64 million) involving high-ranking officials at football’s world governing body.
