SEPP Blatter’s vice-like grip on FIFA indicates that the ongoing twin investigations are the greatest hope for genuine reform, says David Davutovic.

    FOOTBALL Federation Australia doesn’t fear a potential backlash from Asia after voting against Sepp Blatter in Saturday’s FIFA presidential election.

    INFURIATED by her own ineptitude, Sam Stosur has been jettisoned from the French Open at Roland Garros by nemesis Maria Sharapova.

    A DAY after the Australian Oaks in April, Chris Waller ­inspected Winx and conceded that it was going to be a task to keep her up for the Queensland ­carnival.

    SEPP Blatter shrugs off FIFA’s latest corruption scandal to win a record fifth term as president before delivering a bizarre acceptance speech.
