Two UK banks have launched reviews into whether or not they were used for corrupt payments by FIFA.

Barclays, HSBC and Standard Chartered were all named in an FBI indictment against 14 people. Barclays and Standard Chartered have confirmed they are investigating internally.

None of the banks have been accused of any wrongdoing.

It comes after several FIFA officials were arrested in Zurich last week ahead of FIFA's annual Congress, in which president Sepp Blatter was re-elected for a fifth term in office.

The arrests were part of an FBI indictment against nine FIFA officials and five corporate executives over alleged corruption spanning more than two decades.

Separately, Swiss authorities launched its own criminal investigation into the awarding of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups to Russia and Qatar.
