Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini have had their appeals against 90-day provisional bans rejected by FIFA's appeals committee.

Platini and outgoing FIFA president Blatter were both provisionally suspended by FIFA's ethics committee over a £1.3m payment made to the UEFA president in 2011 for work said to be carried out more than nine years previously.

Platini and Blatter lodged appeals against the provisional suspension and after these were rejected they are now expected to take their cases to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
