FIFA president Gianni Infantino has been cleared of breaching the world governing body's code of ethics.

Infantino had been investigated by FIFA's independent ethics committee over "potential breaches" of rules relating to conflicts of interest, loyalty and offering and accepting gifts.

But an ethics committee statement read: "After conducting both preliminary and formal investigation proceedings, the investigatory chamber of the independent ethics committee has decided to conclude its investigations concerning FIFA president Gianni Infantino. It was found that no violation of the FIFA code of ethics (FCE) had been committed by Mr Infantino.

"The adjudicatory chamber took note of and accepted the decision of the investigatory chamber."
