Confederation of African Football president Issa Hayatou has been referred to Egyptian prosecutors for investigation over allegedly abusing his position.

Hayatou is suspected of not opening up the tender to free and fair competition as required by Egyptian law; and has awarded a deal the broadcast rights to several African football tournaments to a media company, Lagardere Sports.

  • CAF is based in Cairo so the authorities say it must follow their laws.
  • Hayatou was elected as CAF president in 1988 and is serving his seventh term in office.
  • The 70-year-old is currently in Nigeria ahead of Thursday’s CAF annual awards.
