Gianni Infantino re-elected for second term as FIFA president

Gianni Infantino has been re-elected as FIFA president.

He was re-elected for a second term, at the Congress of world football’s governing body in Paris on Wednesday.

Infantino’s second term will run until 2023.

FIFA’s 211 member federation retained him without a vote, because he was the only candidate.

Infantino, a 49-year-old Swiss lawyer, was first elected in February 2016 to complete the term of Sepp Blatter.

Blatter was forced out of office following corruption investigations, and is now serving a six-year ban for financial misconduct.
