Did South Africa pay a $10m bribe to host the World Cup in 2010?

It's all coming out now! FIFA has launched a legal battle to claim more than £100 million from corrupt officials and admitted for the first time that South Africa paid bribes for votes for the 2010 World Cup. In a legal submission to US authorities, they have openly accused South Africa of paying a US$10 million bribe to secure votes for the 2010 World Cup. South Africa has however strongly denied any wrong doing.
FIFA also highlighted how one of the main accused, former FIFA vice-president Jeffrey Webb, has allegedly been leading a champagne lifestyle despite agreeing to hand over millions of dollars as part of a plea deal with US authorities.
