Interpol has suspended a €20m (£14m, $22m) "sports integrity" programme agreement it had with Fifa in the wake of the corruption allegations.

The world's police body received the multimillion pound donation from Fifa in 2010 to create a 10-year Integrity in Sport programme to help combat "match-fixing incidents and allegations of corruption" involving criminal gangs and football.

Following the ongoing investigation into allegations of corruption and bribery at football's world governing body, Interpol has now frozen the use of financial contributions from Fifa.

An Interpol spokesperson said the agreement with Fifa includes a clause which states that "the funding party declares notably that its activities are compatible with the principles, aims and activities of Interpol".

Interpol secretary general Jürgen Stock said: "In light of the current context surrounding Fifa, while Interpol is still committed to developing our Integrity in Sport programme, I have decided to suspend the agreement.

"All external partners, whether public or private, must share the fundamental values and principles of the organisation, as well as those of the wider law enforcement community."

A total of 14 football officials have been charged with corruption and bribery allegations, including several Fifa executives such as former vice president Jack Warner.

Warner is accused of being involved in a $10m (£6.5m) payment with regards to the awarding of the 2010 World Cup to South Africa, for which former Fifa executive Chuck Blazer has already admitted to taking some of the money as a bribe.

The scandal led to the resignation of long-term Fifa president Sepp Blatter despite him not being involved in the corruption investigation.
