Switzerland’s supreme court has rejected former Uefa boss Michel Platini’s bid to overturn his four-year ban from football.
The Swiss highest Court upheld a Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruling last year that placed a 4-year-ban on Mitchel Platini .
The court said the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sports did not “appear to be manifestly excessive”.
The duo of Platini and former Fifa counterpart Sepp Blatter were found guilty in 2015 of ethics breaches over a 2m Swiss Franc (£1.3m) “disloyal payment”.
The decision of the court means Platini will have to resign as uefa president.
