Fifa is facing new allegations of corruption over its decision to pick Qatar as the 2022 World Cup host country, according to documents apparently obtained by Britain's The Sunday Times.

The documents allege that former Fifa vice-president and Qatari football official Mohamed Bin Hammam made US$5 million in payments to football officials in exchange for their support of Qatar's bid.
