President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Ahmad Ahmad, has been released by French anti-corruption officials without charge.
Ahmad was arrested in his hotel room in Paris, France where he was staying to attend the 69th FIFA Congress which ended on Wednesday.
The world football governing body confirmed the French probe and said it had requested more information, but CAF is yet to remove itself.
The CAF President is expected to watch today’s (Friday) opening match at the Women’s World Cup (WWC). He will subsequently leave for Egypt ahead of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) starting on June 21.
