Cape Town - Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has seen his provisional 30-day ban for a failed drugs test extended worldwide by FIFA.
The France international was suspended by UEFA last month after he had tested positive for a banned substance on March 17, when the Reds drew 1-1 with Manchester United to progress to the Europa League quarter-finals.
Sakho's sanction had initially prevented him from playing for the Merseyside giants until May 27, but world football's governing body have upgraded the ban to cover all football.
The 26-year-old centre-back has made 38 appearances in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp's side this season and scored in the 4-3 win over Dortmund, which booked their place in the Europa League semi-finals.
"The chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee has decided to extend the sanction imposed on 28 April 2016 by the chairman of the Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body of UEFA on the French player Mamadou Sakho for an anti-doping rule violation to have worldwide effect in accordance with article 136 ff. of the FIFA Disciplinary Code," a FIFA statement read.
"As a consequence, Mr Sakho is provisionally suspended worldwide for 30 days as of 28 April 2016 in accordance with the terms of the decision passed by the chairman of the Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body of UEFA.
"This suspension covers all types of matches, including domestic, international, friendly and official fixtures.
"The decision of the chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee was notified today to The Football Association Ltd., the French Football Association and UEFA."
