Suspended Fifa president Sepp Blatter has been reportedly ordered by doctors to take five days off work after having a medical evaluation for stress.
Blatter who has been in charge of FIFA for 18 years, was provisionally suspended for 90 days last month amid a much-publicized corruption scandal that has also implicated UEFA president Michel Platini.
According to the 79-year-old’s spokesman Klaus Stoehlker, the suspended FIFA Chief consulted a doctor after feeling unwell, and although no underlying problem was discovered he has been ordered to rest.
“He is under medical evaluation.
“He is under tremendous pressure and perhaps this is a little bit difficult for a man who is not the youngest.” Stoehlker told BBC Sports.
Stohlker also added that Blatter who is recovering at home had been forced to cancel an interview with Swiss television that was planned for next week.
It is hoped that Blatter will get well enough to leave his residence by the end of next week.
