Infantino Leads After First Round of FIFA Elections

Europe's Gianni Infantino caused a surprise by polling the most votes in Round- One of voting in Friday's election to succeed Sepp Blatter as FIFA president.

The UEFA Secretary General failed to get enough to seal outright victory, claiming 88 of the 207 votes available at an extraordinary congress in Zurich.

Pre-vote favourite Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa won 85.

Prince Ali bin al-Hussein was next with 27, followed by Jerome Champagne on seven.
Tokyo Sexwale withdrew earlier.

To become president after the first round of voting, a candidate needed to secure two-thirds of the available votes, which equated to 138.

In round two, a simple majority is required.

Delegates from around the world have gathered in Switzerland to elect Blatter's successor.

Blatter, who led world football's governing body since 1998, stood down last year amid a corruption crisis and was later banned from football for six years.
