Time runs out for FA chairman Dyke and luxury watch

FIFA chief investigator Michael Garcia has still to reveal whether FA chairman Greg Dyke will be punished for failing to return a luxury World Cup gift - a week after the deadline, reports Sky Sports. Dyke was one of 65 officials to receive a Parmigiani watch, a present from the Brazilian Confederation, but revealed he was unaware it was worth more than £16,000.

The gift broke FIFA ethics rules and Garcia ordered that the watches were returned to his investigatory chamber no later than October 24.

But, a week after the deadline, FIFA's chief investigator has yet to announce how many watches have been returned.

Dyke has refused to return the gift and intends to auction the watch on behalf of Breast Cancer Care, the FA's charity partner.
