William calls for Fifa to reform as Blatter under fire

Prince William has called for Fifa to reform, claiming it must show that it "can represent the interests of fair play and put the sport first".

The organisation and President Sepp Blatter have been heavily criticised after a week, which saw seven Fifa officials arrested and 18 people connected to football indicted on corruption charges by the US justice department.

But Blatter remained defiant, insisting he was the right man to lead world football through it's current crisis.
