A Fifa vice-president has said he would have "no hesitation" in backing a re-vote to find a new host for the Qatar World Cup in 2022 if corruption allegations can be proven.
Speaking to ITV News, Jim Boyce said: "These allegations are obviously very, very serious. I have not yet had the opportunity to read the whole article. But I would say that anybody that has anything whatsoever should pass it over to Mr Garcia.
"If Mr Garcia comes back to Fifa, which he has to do, when he carries out these investigations with a full report, and makes certain recommendations, if a re-vote is what's necessary, I would have no hesitation whatsover in backing that, provided the allegations are completely true."
