    BBC Sport Fifa paid to stop Henry legal action

    Fifa 'paid FAI to stop legal action over Henry's World Cup handball'

    Fifa paid the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) to stop legal action over Thierry's Henry's handball in Ireland's World Cup play-off defeat by France in 2009, it has been claimed.
    FAI chief executive John Delaney said the association believed it had a legal case against Fifa.
    A fee was then agreed to drop the claim, Delaney said, after Ireland missed the 2010 finals in South Africa.
    The fee was believed to be 5 million euros (£3.6m).
