World Cup clashing with Winter Olympics moves a step closer

Influential football figures have backed proposals that could see the Qatar 2022 World Cup clash with the Winter Olympics. BBC Sport understands that talks at Fifa headquarters in Zurich resulted in support for a tournament held in January and February.

No final decision was taken and, in theory, all options remain open.

Fifa is adamant the tournament cannot take place in June and July because of extreme temperatures in Qatar.
