FIFA VP facing ethics probe resigns

World soccer's governing body FIFA have confrmed that vice president Jack Warner has resigned from his position within the organization.

Last month Trinidadian Warner, along with fellow-FIFA member Mohammed bin Hammam, were provisionally suspended by FIFA's Ethics Committee, pending the outcome of an investigation of corruption allegations against them.

But, following Warner's resignation, that investigation will now not take place.

A FIFA statement read: "His resignation has been accepted by world football's governing body, and his contribution to international football and to Caribbean football in particular are appreciated and acknowledged."
