SUSPENDED FIFA PRESIDENT Sepp Blatter has been placed under medical observation, a spokesman today, stressing though that he should be back on his feet within a week.

A local Swiss radio station reported Friday that Blatter, long the most powerful man in football, had suffered a “medical incident” last weekend and had been placed under medical observation for 10 days.

Blatter’s spokesman Klaus Stoehlker confirmed that “President Blatter is under medical evaluation.”

“He is not in hospital, but at home and hopes to be back end of next week,” he wrote in an email.
