As reported: A Fifa official detained in a raid in Switzerland has been extradited to the US, Swiss authorities say.
The unnamed man was one of seven football officials held on corruption charges in Switzerland on 27 May.
He was taken to New York by a three-man police escort on Wednesday, the Swiss Justice Department says.
The person was notd, but earlier reports said Cayman Islands official Jeffrey Webb had waived his right to fight the American extradition request.
Mr Webb, 50, is the former president of the Central and North American football federation, Concacaf, and is a Fifa vice-president.

He is one of 14 current and former Fifa officials and associates on charges of "rampant, systemic, and deep-rooted" corruption" following an FBI investigation.
