Gianni Infantino elected FIFA President

Switzerland's Gianni Infantino has succeeded countryman Sepp Blatter as FIFA President. The UEFA secretary general polled 115 votes in round two, 27 more than closest rival Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa.
Infantino is a 45-year-old lawyer from Brig in the Valais region of Switzerland, less than six miles from Blatter's home town of Visp. He entered the presidential race when it became clear that Michel Platini, boss of European football's governing body Uefa, could not stand. The election was due to be fought between five candidates, but South African Tokyo Sexwale withdrew before voting began in Zurich.
