French authorities have seized documents from the headquarters of the French Football Federation in connection with the criminal investigation into ex-FIFA president Sepp Blatter.
The office of the Swiss attorney general began criminal proceedings Blatter last September for suspected financial mismanagement in relation to the £1.35million payment made to Michel Platini in 2011.
Tuesday's raids took place with the cooperation of the French Financial Prosecution Office and the Swiss attorney general's office has confirmed the documents are connected to the suspected payment.
Blatter and Platini have denied any wrongdoing but FIFA's ethics committee found them guilty of breaches in relation to the payments with the pair banned from all football-related activity for six years.
