The vote for the presidency of Fifa, football’s world governing body, has gone into a second round after neither candidate won two-thirds of the vote.

The incumbent Sepp Blatter won 133 votes to 73 for Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan.

The second round requires a simple majority of the 209 federations.

The vote has been overshadowed by corruption allegations after seven top officials were arrested in Switzerland on Wednesday in a US prosecution.
