The arrests of 14 FIFA delegates and the tales of corruption surrounding disgraced president Sepp Blatter has been long overdue and is a welcome relief for all true football fans.
But it is important to remember that none of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for the hard work of dedicated journalists who refused to go away.
While Andrew Jennings will deservedly take the plaudits for his 15 year campaign, praise must also go to all those who strived to name and shame the crooks and conmen tarnishing the beautiful game.
This is surely only the beginning of a wider story and there will no doubt be a journalist on the scene to break the next chapter.
