Sepp Blatter Will Resign as FIFA President

FIFA President Sepp Blatter says he will resign from soccer's governing body amid a widening corruption scandal. He has also promised to call for fresh elections to choose a successor. The 79-year-old Blatter was re-elected to a fifth term on Friday, two days after a corruption crisis erupted and seven soccer officials were arrested in Zurich ahead of the FIFA congress.
Speaking at a hastily arranged news conference on Tuesday, Blatter says "this mandate does not seem to be supported by everybody in the world of football."
Elections are expected to take place sometime between December and March.
