Although Blatter failed to secure a two-thirds majority in the first round, with 133 votes in favor instead of the 139 votes needed, Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan conceded defeat before a second round was held.
Blatter was backed by 133 votes in the first round, while Prince Ali received 73 votes, and three ballots were spoiled.
