Away from football, Uefa has discontinued its partnership with Russian energy behemoth Gazprom.

A joint statement from FIFA and UEFA said: “Football stands in complete sympathy with all those impacted in Ukraine.”

“Both presidents hope that the situation in Ukraine will quickly improve, allowing football to once again be a vehicle for human solidarity and peace.”

FIFA and UEFA have agreed to intervene after Russia, backed by Belarus, invaded Ukraine last Thursday.
