Michel Platini has been given permission by FIFA's ethics committee to address the UEFA Congress in Athens this week despite his four-year ban from all football-related activity.

UEFA requested that Platini be allowed to speak at the Congress on Wednesday and has now announced that the request has been granted, a decision which it welcomes.

On the agenda at the Congress is the election of Platini's successor as UEFA president.
