World football governing body, Fifa has banned Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey for life for "match manipulation".

The centre-man was found guilty of manipulating a World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Senegal which is expected to be replayed November this year.

Mr Lamptey awarded a penalty to South Africa in their 2 – 1 win in November last year for handball but replays showed the ball hit Senegal's Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly on the knee.

Lamptey was initially banned for life in March but on Wednesday, 6 September 2017, the decision was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
