Sepp Blatter on Tuesday resigned as president of FIFA only four days after his re-election to a fifth term.

“While I have a mandate from the membership of FIFA, 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. I will continue to exercise my functions as FIFA President until that election,” he said.

“An extraordinary congress is to be called to elect my successor as soon as possible,” said the 79-year-old Swiss official, FIFA president for 17 years.
