Sepp Blatter Resigns As Fifa President!

79-year-old Sepp Blatter who has held the post of FIFA presidency for 17 years, has stepped down in light of the corruption scandal which has blighted the world governing body!

Blatter has announced he will step down as president of Fifa, calling an extraordinary congress "as rapidly as possible" at which a successor will be selected.

According to him:

"I have thoroughly thought about my presidency and the 40 years Fifa has played in my life. I love Fifa more than anything else and I only want to do the best. I decided to stand again for election for the good of football," he told the gathered media.

"My mandate does not appear to be supported by everybody. This is why I will call an extraordinary meeting.

"I will organise an extraordinary congress for a replacement for me as president. I will not stand. I am
now free from the constraints of an election. I will be in a position to focus on profound reforms. For many years we have called for reforms. But these are not sufficient.

"We need a limitation on mandates and terms of office. I have fought for these changes but my efforts have been counteracted."
