Former FIFA senior vice president David Chung has been banned from football for six-and-a-half years for accepting gifts and acting under a conflict of interest.

The Papua New Guinea official, who was also the President of the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) and a member of the FIFA Council, suddenly resigned from his roles in April.

It followed a financial probe into the construction of the new OFC "Home of Football" headquarters in Auckland in New Zealand.
