Ex-FIFA president Sepp Blatter attending a World Cup match does not directly constitute a breach of his ban from "all football activities," a FIFA spokesman told Reuters on Wednesday.

Blatter, who led FIFA for 17 years, is serving a six-year ban for unethical conduct. He attended a World Cup match at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium earlier on Wednesday.

"In itself, this is not a breach. It depends on what he does at the match," said FIFA spokesman Alois Hug.
