ZURICH (Reuters) - Former FIFA executive committee member Worawi Makudi has been suspended for 90 days pending a full investigation, the Ethics Committee of soccer's governing body said on Monday.

"The decision was taken... on the grounds that a breach of the Code of Ethics appears to have been committed and a decision on the main issue may not be taken early enough," said a statement. "The case is now the subject of formal investigation proceedings."
