Issa Hayatou looks far from exhilarated to be attending his first Fifa press conference as acting president

          FIFA’S acting president Issa Hayatou looked to have fallen asleep during his first media appearance.

Hayatou, who is standing in for the suspended Sepp Blatter, was speaking at a press conference today in Zurich.

The meeting covered a number of exciting reforms for the corruption-hit football governing body, including a proposal to expand the World Cup from 32 teams to 40.

But the new temporary boss looked far from exhilarated during chairman of the 2016 Fifa Reform Committee Dr Francois Carrard’s speech as he appeared to doze off in his seat.

And people took to social media to Tweet their reactions.
