New FIFA President, Issa Hayatou Was Caught Sleeping At His First Press Conference



Issa Hayatou seemed to fall asleep on the job in his first news conference as interim FIFA president yesterday, Thursday.
Just three weeks after undergoing a kidney transplant, it was easy to see why the 69-year-old official from Cameroon briefly snoozed during a long-winded slideshow presentation of FIFA’s reform program.
Still, the Confederation of African Football president was sharp and combative minutes later when quizzed on his links to wrongdoing allegations and his fitness for the task of leading FIFA through to the Feb. 26 election.
Issa Hayatou, temporarily replaces Sepp Blatter, the eighth FIFA president who was suspended over scandalous allegations of corruption.
