Former UEFA President Michel Platini has been released on Tuesday following an arrest as part of investigation into the awarding of the 2022 FIFA World Cup to Qatar, according to reports in France.

Mediapart reported the 63-year-old, currently serving a four-year ban from football, had been questioned at the Anti-Corruption Office of the Judicial Police (OCLCIFF) – in Paris Tuesday morning.

Platini has been detained on suspicion of corruption linked to the controversial decision to grant Qatar hosting rights for the 2022 World Cup in December 2010.

He was detained along with two aides of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Platini was taken to be questioned in Nanterre, a western suburb of Paris, early this morning.

Sophie Dion, Sarkozy's then sports adviser, and Claude Gueant, the former secretary general of the Elysee, were also quizzed, according to the French newspaper Le Monde.

Platini was later released without charge.
