Zurich - Swiss prosecutors said Thursday that FIFA have agreed to hand over the emails of suspended secretary general Jerome Valcke.

Access to the emails had been demanded by Switzerland's Attorney General Michael Lauber as part of his probe into corruption allegations surrounding the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

"Today, late afternoon, FIFA informed the Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland (OAG) to unseal all email accounts belonging to Mr. Jerome Valcke, suspended secretary-general," said a statement from the prosecutor's office.

"The OAG will have access to Mr. Valcke's email accounts as requested.

"Furthermore, the OAG is pleased to note that FIFA has handed over on its own initiative Jerome Valcke's emails since May 2015."
