INTERNATIONAL: Sepp Blatter in hospital: Suspended Fifa president treated for illness in Switzerland

blatterINDEPENDENT (UK) – Sepp Blatter has been admitted to hospital and is likely to remain there for several days.

The BBC reports the suspended Fifa president suffered what has been described as “a small breakdown” and “nervous shock”, but is expected to make a full recovery.

A spokesman said Mr Blatter told him: “My brain and heart are fine, but my body is letting me down.”

Mr Blatter, 79, was provisionally suspended for 90 days last month amid a corruption scandal.

The criminal case centres on whether he misused Fifa money by making a 2m euro (£1.35m) payment to Uefa president Michel Platini for consultation work. They both deny any wrongdoing.
