South African businessman, Tokyo Sexwale has pulled out of the FIFA Presidential elections holding today. The election to replace Sepp Blatter is now effectively between four candidates after Sexwale announced the suspension of his campaign.
He said “My candidacy ends today, I end my participation, I leave you four candidates.
“My campaign is suspended as of now.”
Tokyo Sexwale was considered an outsider, having failed to receive the backing of his own Football Association.
