Sepp Blatter has been re-elected president of FIFA, football’s world governing body.

The vote took place at FIFA’s congress in Zurich and a candidate needed 140 votes to win in the first round.

Mr Blatter won 133 votes falling seven short of the two-thirds needed.

Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan secured 73, and opted not to contest further.

Blatter hailed his victory, thanking all those who voted for him and his rival, Prince Ali.

Mr Blatter said: “I am not perfect, nobody is perfect, but we will do a good job together I am sure.”

He also hinted that this term in office, his fifth, could be his last, saying: “At the end of my term I will give up FIFA in a strong position.”
