FIFA says it “will continue to co-operate fully” after police made arrests at a Swiss hotel used by its officials for a second time this year, the BBC reports.

Police swooped on the luxury Baur au Lac hotel in Zurich and two people were seen being taken to a garage and then to two unmarked cars, which drove away.

A two-day meeting of FIFA’s executive committee is taking place in the city.

“FIFA became aware of the actions taken today by the US Department of Justice,” football’s world governing body said.

“FIFA will continue to co-operate fully with the US investigation as permitted by Swiss law, as well as with the investigation being led by the Swiss Office of the Attorney General.

“FIFA will have no further comment on today’s developments.”
