Switzerland's Gianni Infantino leads the first round of voting for the presidency of the ruling body FIFA but fails to miss a required two-thirds majority as a second round of voting is needed.
Infantino garnered 88 votes from all 207 valid ballots, three more than the other favourite Sheikh Salman Bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa of Bahrain, who had 85.
Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan had 27 votes and Frenchman Jerome Champagne 7.
For a two-thirds majority 138 votes were required. From the second round onwards a simple majority of 104 votes is enough, and if no candidate gets that a third and possible further rounds follows, with the candidate with the least votes eliminated.
