BERNE (Reuters) - The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has invited counsel for both Michel Platini and FIFA to attend a hearing on Tuesday on whether his 90-day suspension from football should be temporarily lifted.

"A decision on such request for a stay is likely to be issued on Friday 11 December 2015, at the latest," said CAS in a statement. UEFA president Platini has been provisionally banned pending a FIFA ethics inquiry into his conduct and a final verdict in his case is due by the end of the month.
