Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter is in hospital in a serious but stable condition.
His daughter Corinne announced the news to Blick, saying: “My father is in the hospital and is getting better every day. He needs time and rest.
“On behalf of my family, I ask for privacy”.
Blatter’s state of health is considered serious, according to reports, but he is not believed to be in life-threatening condition.
This isn’t the first time the 84-year-old has been hospitalised, with the Swiss suffering health problems in November 2015 and July 2016.
Former FIFA president Blatter was removed from office back in 2015 after 17 years in charge of the world football’s governing body.
