Fifa has confirmed that the Confederation of African Football President Ahmad is being questioned by authorities in France.
A statement from football's world governing body says it is "in relation to allegations related to his mandate while he was a President of Caf."
Ahmed has been a president of Confederation of African Football since replacing Issa Hayatou in 2017.
The statement further said that "Fifa is unaware of the details surrounding this investigation and is therefore not in a position to make any comment on it specifically.
"Fifa is asking the French authorities for any information that might be relevant to investigations taking place within its Ethics Committee."
