BREAKING: New FIFA President Emerges

Gianni Infantino has won Fifa’s election for a new president, succeeding the disgraced Sepp Blatter.


Uefa’s general secretary secured 115 votes in the second round of polls, beating off favourite Salman Bin Ibrahim al-Khalifa into second while Prince Ali bin Hussein finished third.

Infantino succeeds the dethroned Sepp Blatter, who was suspended from all football activities for eight years – later reduced to six – along with ex-Uefa president Michel Platini for corruption.
