Qatar should be stripped of the World Cup if allegations of bribery and corruption are proven, a member of Fifa's Independent Governance Committee has said.
Lord Goldsmith, a former Attorney General, pointed out that the committee had already produced a report calling for Fifa to come up with a "convincing and transparent answer to these allegations".
He told Radio 4's Today programme that this response could mean taking the tournament away from Qatar: "What I believe that means - I'm not speaking for the committee...- is if these allegations are shown to be true then the hosting decision for Qatar has to be re-run."
