Former Fifa president Sepp Blatter will learn whether his appeal against his six-year ban from football is successful on Monday.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport will announce their decision regarding the 80-year-old's future in the sport.

Blatter is contesting the ban, which was handed down due to a "disloyal payment" allegedly made to Michel Platini in 2011.

Both men were originally banned for eight years by the sport's world governing body last December, but that was reduced to six years by a Fifa appeals panel in February, before Platini had his ban cut by a further two years by CAS in May.

The result of Blatter's appeal will be made public at 1400 GMT (1500 local time) on Monday.

A CAS statement confirmed: "The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will issue its decision in the arbitration procedure between Joseph S Blatter and the Federation Internationale de Football Association (Fifa) at 3.00pm (Swiss time) on Monday, December 5 2016."
