Sepp Blatter resigns from FIFA, the internet reacts

Wednesday 3rd June 2015
After winning the latest bout of FIFA Presidential Elections, (despite a massive FBI investigation into "alleged" corruption) Sepp Blatter sensational resigned from his post, causing the Football World to cheer collectively at once.

Never has a resignation been meant with such global approval (expect maybe Margaret Thatcher in 1990).

Just before the announcement, English comedian John Oliver once again had another pop at FIFA in this hilarious video, well worth a watch....
Hard to believe that a country of six thousand people receive the same share of money from FIFA as the United States (watch the video above!!).

Here is a collection of the best tweets and vines celebrating the event.
And the fitting final word goes to John Oliver
Mick Bates

Mick is a passionate fan of Coventry City and has watched from the sidelines (and had the privilege of seeing the inner workings during an exciting two years in corporate sales there) to see the once mighty Sky Blues fall from the Premier League, then fail to sparkle in the Championship, relegated from League One and wind up in League Two before winning the most important fixture in football competitions - The Checkatrade Trophy final followed by a heart-stopping promotion back to League One.

As well as supporting the Sky Blues, Mick appreciates all levels of football and loves a good book to keep himself entertained as well as a few hours on FIFA or Football Manager as time allows.

He also keeps an eye on all the major English leagues and regularly enjoys a flutter looking for that elusive treble!
