Coca-Cola have hit out at Fifa over the handling of a controversial report into how the 2018 and 2022 World Cup tournaments were awarded.
Ethics investigator Michael Garcia disagreed with the conclusions reached by German judge Hans-Joachim Eckert, whose report exonerated the bids made by Qatar and Russia for the respective tournaments.
The drinks company, which is one of Fifa's longest-standing and biggest sponsors, issued a statement criticising the furore:
Anything that detracts from the mission and ideals of the Fifa World Cup is a concern to us. The current conflicting perspectives regarding the investigation are disappointing. Our expectation is that this will be resolved quickly in a transparent and efficient manner.
