    The Court of Arbitration for Sport has cut Michel Platini's suspension period from 6 to 4 years, the court said in a statement released Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Platini's fine has also been decreased to 60,000 ($62,000) Swiss francs from 80,000 Swiss francs. 

    ​"The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has rendered its decision in the arbitration procedure between Michel Platini and the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). The suspension of Mr. Platini has been lowered from 6 to 4 years," the statement reads.

    In December 2015, Platini was banned from football-related activities over corruption allegations.
