British comedian John Oliver has paid for airtime on Trinidad television with the purpose of asking former FIFA Vice-President Jack Warner to stand by his word and reveal what he knows about corruption inside world football’s Governing body.
The comedian and talk show host in a four-minute segment shown on TV6 on Tuesday night called on Warner to “release everything” after the disgraced 72-year-old and former Concacaf President used his own paid-for political broadcast on TV6 to claim he had proof of FIFA wrongdoing.

Warner’s broadcast on TV6 was called “The Gloves Are Off”, leading Oliver, who has been a staunch and witty critic of FIFA for some time, largely in his role as presenter of the US show Last Week Tonight, to call his broadcast “The Mittens of Disapproval Are On”.
