Gianni Infantino has been elected as Fifa president, winning a majority of votes on the second ballot beating Sheikh Salman al-Khalifa to the job


And we’re probably about done here. So, to sum up, Gianni Infantino is the new president of Fifa, having won the election on the second ballot, gaining 115 votes and beating Sheikh Salman al-Khalifa who got 88. Thanks for reading, and hopefully we won’t be doing this again soon.
