Swiss authorities have carried out a search of Fifa’s headquarters in Zurich as they continue their criminal investigation into football’s world governing body.

Documents and electronic data were seized during Thursday’s operation.

The latest raid relates to the investigations of former Fifa president Sepp Blatter and former secretary general Jerome Valcke.

Both are suspected of criminal mismanagement of Fifa money.

Blatter and Valcke deny wrongdoing but were banned for six and 12 years respectively by the governing body’s ethics committee.
