Acting FIFA President Issa Hayatou has announced the first-round results:
Gianni Infantino – 88 votes
Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa – 85 votes
Prince Ali bin al-Hussein – 27 votes
Jerome Champagne – 7 votes
Tokyo Sexwale dropped from the race after his speech. Second round of voting will soon commence. Now only a simple majority of 104 votes is required to win the race. Gianni Infantino claimed 88 in the first round and Sheikh Salman 85 so their camps will now be busy lobbying in an attempt to swell their support while the vote is set up. If neither man claims a majority in the second voting, then a third round of voting will hold with the candidate with the fewest votes dropping out..
