Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 26
Gianni Infantino has been elected the new FIFA president after he received 115 votes during the second round of the election in Zurich, the UK's Daily Mail has reported.
The former UEFA general secretary edged his nearest competitor Sheik Salman, who got a total of 88 votes, said the report.
They were separated by just three votes during the first round leading to a second round of voting, which saw Infantino emerge victorious.
Voting for the new FIFA president went into a second round after Infantino and Salman failed to secure a two-thirds majority.
