Zurich - FIFA's anti-corruption court has banned Thailand football chief Worawi Makudi for five years for forgery and refusing to cooperate with an investigation.

Worawi, who was also fined 10,000 Swiss francs ($10,000), has been linked to multiple scandals in his former role as head of the Football Association of Thailand (FAT).

He was found guilty in July 2015 by a Thai court of forgery in his re-election as head of FAT.
