Round two: Fifa presidential vote goes second round

Sepp Blatter is set to be re-elected as Fifa president – but will have to undergo a second round of voting after failing to secure the required two-thirds majority first time around.

The Swiss received 133 votes, with his sole rival for the role, Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, racking up just 73.

However, as Blatter failed to secure the necessary two-thirds majority for victory via for the first round of voting, a second round of voting is required.

The 79-year-old now only requires a majority victory to secure a fifth term as Fifa president, though Prince Ali could yet elect to withdraw before the second round.
