Issa Hayatou now FIFA acting president

Former Cameroonian athlete and president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Issa Hayatou, 69, is now FIFA acting president. This comes in the wake of the announced suspension of the football governing body’s president Sepp Blatter yesterday for 90 days following corruption allegations.

Blatter has been stripped of all duties pending an investigation. Hayatou takes over as senior vice president of FIFA.
