Kalusha Bwalya has been banned for two years by world governing body Fifa.

The former African Footballer of the Year was suspended for two years from all football-related activities at both national and international level.

Fifa had been investigating the 54-year-old Zambian since February 2017 following his links with banned Qatari official Bin Hammam.

Hammam was banned for life from football by Fifa in 2011 for his part in a cash-for-votes scandal.

Fifa said in a statement that the adjudicatory chamber found Bwalya guilty of having violated article 16 (confidentiality) and article 20 (offering and accepting gifts and other benefits) of the Fifa Code of Ethics.

A fine in the amount of 100,000 Swiss francs ($100,600, £78,900) was also imposed on him.
