Ahmad was suspended by Fifa for five years in November

The Madagascan Ahmad has been reinstated in his functions as president of the African Football Confederation (Caf) following a decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Case).

Ahmad was suspended by Fifa in November for five years after world football’s governing body found he had violated several of its codes of ethics.

The Malagasy – who will now resume his role as vice-president of Fifa – appealed against his decision to the Cas, which issued a preliminary ruling on Friday.

Ahmad is still not eligible for the Caf presidency elections in March, as the Cas’s decision came after the Caf Governance Committee and the FIFA Review Committee met earlier this week to discuss the eligibility of applicants.
