Former Fifa officials Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini have been charged with fraud and other offences in Switzerland.

 

Swiss prosecutors say Blatter unlawfully arranged a transfer of two million Swiss francs to Platini in 2011.

 

Prosecutors say the payment damaged Fifa's assets and unlawfully enriched Platini.

 

Blatter and Platini now face trial at a court in Bellinzona.

 

If found guilty of the charges, the pair could receive prison sentences of several years or fines.
