SEPP BLATTER-1Suspended FIFA president, Sepp Blatter has been hospitalised and placed under medical observation for stress.

The embattled Swiss, who was forced to abandon his fifth term as FIFA President due to ongoing corruption scandal rocking the world’s football governing body, is expecting to be discharged early next week, his spokesman, Klaus Stoehlker disclosed Wednesday. “He is now, at this moment in hospital. He is preparing to leave on Monday and will be back on the job on Tuesday,” he told AFP.

Stoehlker added that 79-year-old Blatter had “regained his good humour” and has vowed to persist with “his fight against the (FIFA) ethics committee” which suspended him for 90 days over corruption allegations.
