Former UEFA President Michel Platini has been arrested.

French functionary Platini was taken into custody on Tuesday morning as part of the investigation into the awarding of the World Cup to Qatar.

The former France international captain was detained by French police on Tuesday morning in Nanterre.

Platini is suspected of participating in a possible process of falsifying the results of the 2010 vote.

Notably, Michel Platini was elected head of UEFA in 2007 and served as President until 2015, when he was removed from the post by the FIFA Ethics Committee. On December 21, he was disqualified for 8 years. However, his sentence was reduced to 4 years in May 2016.
