ZURICH - FIFA banned Mohamed bin Hammam from all soccer duty for life on Saturday after finding him guilty of bribing presidential election voters.

A FIFA ethics panel ruled that the Qatari candidate conspired to pay Caribbean officials US$40,000 cash bribes to back his ultimately abandoned challenge to FIFA President Sepp Blatter.
