GENEVA - Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary will be able to play over the coming months after world sport's top court granted him a temporary stay of execution on a suspension imposed by Fifa.

The Court of Arbitration of Sport froze the sanction first meted out on El-Hadary and Swiss club Sion in April while it examines the dispute over his controversial transfer to the Swiss side last year from Egyptian club Al-Ahly.

World football's governing body Fifa had suspended El-Hadary, who recently left Sion, for four months and ordered the joint payment of about R10million to Al-Ahly. - Sapa-AFP
