Sepp Blatter was re-elected as the president of FIFA today amid allegations from U.S. and Swiss authorities of alleged corruption and bribery that have plagued soccer’s international governing body.
He defeated Prince Ali Bin-Hussein of Jordan to retain his position at the top of one of the world’s most corrupt organisations.
After the first round of voting, there was no clear winner, as neither received the necessary two thirds majority vote to win.
Prince Ali received 73 votes and Blatter received 133.
Ali withdrew before the second round of voting.
