SPORT: JEROME CHAMPAGNE OUT OF THE RUNNING FOR FIFA PRESIDENCY

FIFA presidential candidate Jerome Champagne says he’s out of the running to take the top position in world football.

The Frenchman’s failed in his attempt to get the backing of five federations he needs to be included on the May ballot.

Sepp Blatter will face competition as he looks to secure a fifth presidential term – Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan, Dutch soccer chief Michael van Praag, and former world footballer of the year Luis Figo have all secured the necessary nominations.
