Prince Ali wants Friday's vote suspended

Lawyers for Fifa presidential candidate Prince Ali bin al-Hussein say they have made an official request for Friday’s election to be suspended.

Prince Ali, 40, is unhappy with voting arrangements so he has taken his case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
The Jordanian’s plea for transparent voting booths was rejected by world football’s election commission.
Prince Ali is one of five contenders looking to succeed Swiss Sepp Blatter, who is stepping down after 18 years.
He is up against South African businessman Tokyo Sexwale, Asian Football Confederation president Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa, former Fifa deputy general secretary Jerome Champagne and Uefa general secretary Gianni Infantino.
