VIDEO: The rise and fall of Sepp Blatter - Suspended FIFA president begins appeal

Banned FIFA president Sepp Blatter's appeal against his eight-year suspension from all football-related activity will be heard on Tuesday.

Blatter, 79, was banned in December after he was found guilty of a £1.3million "disloyal payment" to UEFA president Michel Platini in 2011. Frenchman Platini, who was also served with an eight-year ban for his role in the payment, made his case against his ban at a FIFA appeal hearing in Zurich on Monday.
