Al-Khelaifi has been linked to a major role in making illicit payments designed to assist Qatar to host track & field world championship events. A suspicious payment of $3.5m was made days before Doha was approved, over London, as IAAF world champion event host. Al-Khelaifi's attorney alleges that the payment was for commercial broadcast rights to the event.
