Former FIFA official Chuck Blazer has died at the age of 72, his lawyers said.
Chuck Blazer, who was banned from all football activities in 2015, was suffering from cancer.
In 2013, he pleaded guilty to bribery, money laundering and tax evasion, but agreed to help investigators uncover corruption at FIFA.
A hero of his life, he is a former head of CONCACAF, the governing body of North and Central America.
