Issa Hayatou will lead FIFA for the nest 90 days.

Acting FIFA president Issa Hayatou has undergone a “successful” kidney transplant, the world football governing body announced on Friday.

“Issa Hayatou has never hidden the fact that, for several years now, he has been suffering from a renal insufficiency, a situation that has not, however, prevented him from fully performing his duties at the heart of world and African football’s governing bodies, without interruption,” said a FIFA statement.

“He will continue to fulfil his role as acting FIFA president as intended.”

The veteran Cameroonian, 69, who is also boss of the African federation, has been running FIFA since Sepp Blatter was suspended for 90 days last month.
