Sepp Blatter Resigns As Fifa President

A scandal, followed by a shock. Sepp Blatter announced on Wednesday that he was resigning as Fifa president, in an announcement at what those in the business call a “hastily convened” press conference in Zurich. Blatter, looking sad and weary and all of his 79 years, said in a pre-prepared speech: “I do not feel that I have a mandate from the entire world of football – the fans, the players, the clubs, the people who live, breathe and love football as much as we all do at Fifa. Therefore, I have decided to lay down my mandate at an extraordinary elective Congress.”
