Ousted Asian football chief Mohamed bin Hammam said on Thursday he had appealed his lifetime ban for allegedly seeking to buy votes in this year's FIFA presidential election.

"I will continue my battle until I prove my innocence and that my suspension was a political decision and an absolute abuse of power to deprive me of my right to contest for FIFA presidency," bin Hammam wrote on his personal blog.
