Outgoing Fifa president Sepp Blatter has said he is being treated as a "punching ball", after being banned from all football-related activities for eight years.
"To say that it's a good day for me or for Fifa would be totally wrong," he said.
He defended a £1.3 million payment he made to Uefa president Michel Platini, saying it had been part of an oral contract - or "gentleman's agreement" - for his work for Fifa.
He accused the Ethics Committee of ignoring evidence of the agreement.
"I'm sorry that I'm still a punching ball - and I'm sorry for football," he said.
Blatter: I'm really sorry, I'm sorry that I'm still a punching ball. I'm sorry for football.... but I'm sorry about me. How I'm treated ..
Michel Platini will be able to attend Euro 2016 matches in France next summer despite his Fifa ban - but only if he buys a ticket as a fan.
