The Football Association has suspended its support of Michel Platini's bid to become the new FIFA president.

The UEFA president is being investigated for corruption after claims he received a 1.35 million pound bribe from Sepp Blatter in 2011.

Platini is trying to be Blatter's successor as boss of world football.

But, the FA says it's learned more information relating to the issues and is therefore withdrawing its support of Platini.

Meanwhile, the 2006 World Cup is now being investigated for corruption.

A German news magazine claims the country's football federation paid millions of dollars to FIFA executive members to win the vote to host the tournament.
