After Blatter: The World Cup of scandals (part 1)

In The World This Week we look at the Fifa World Cup corruption scandal. Last summer, a claim was made that Fifa had paid hush money to a local football federation. The money was to stop them from suing over Thierry Henry's hand ball pass that qualified France at the expense of the Irish for the 2010 World Cup. In a week that saw Fifa's seemingly immovable supremo knocked off his perch, it turns out that claim was true.
