Football's world governing body FIFA has told its executive committee members and other top officials to return 65 luxury watches they received ahead of the World Cup in Brazil. Here is Alex Capstick.
It's an embarrassing revelation for an organization which has been attempting to repair a reputation stained by a series of corruption scandals. The Parmigiani watches, each of an estimated value of more than 26,000 dollars, were given by the Brazilian Football Federation to delegates of FIFA's Congress in Sao Paolo last June. But the acceptance of such an expensive gift contravenes FIFA's rules. It came to light after several officials complained. Following an investigation, those still holding a watch they received have been told they will avoid further action if they return it by Oct 24th.
