South Africa to respond to World Cup bribe allegation
South Africa's sports minister is due to make a statement on the allegations of bribery in connection with the country's bid to host the 2010 World Cup.
Fikile Mbalula comments come a day after a submission to a US court by football's world governing body, Fifa, said South Africa paid a bribe to help it secure the competition.
This was the first time that Fifa had made such a claim.
Mr Mbablula had previously said the allegation was untrue.
