FA president has been handed a suspended jail term after being found guilty of forgery in his 2013 re-election.

A Bangkok sentenced Worawi to a suspended term of one year and four months, with former Thailand Football Association (FAT) secretary general Ong-art Korsinka handed the same sentence for his role in the forgery.
