Dyke returns £16k watch

FIFA has announced that Football Association chairman Greg Dyke has returned a £16,000 watch he was given as a gift.

Dyke was given one of a limited edition of Parmigiani watches by the Brazilian FA during a FIFA Congress meeting in Sao Paulo during the World Cup - with 65 handed out in goodie bags totalling more than £1million.

When the watches were recalled, Dyke initially refused to hand his back but, with the threat of sanctions if he did not return the watch, FIFA's ethics committee has confirmed receipt of the item and has now closed proceedings on the matter.
