Mohamed Bin Hammam is no longer banned from football for life after being annulled by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
The former Asian Football Confederation chief was handed a life ban by FIFA when he was found guilty of bribery about a year ago but the CAS have ruled that there was not enough evidence to pin Bin Hammam.
The Qatari appealed the decision by FIFA's ethics committee which came after he allegedly paid bribes to Caribbean officials while campaigning against Sepp Blatter for the FIFA presidency.
Bin Hammam has always believed that FIFA were simply trying to tarnish his name for challenging Blatter for the role with the CAS now deciding that insufficient evidence has allowed him to win the appeal.
"The panel is doing no more than concluding that the evidence is insufficient in that it does not permit the majority of the panel to reach the standard of comfortable satisfaction in relation to the matters on which the appellant was charged," the CAS report said.
