A British university, De Montfort University, has stripped disgraced FIFA president, Sepp Blatter, of an honorary degree he was awarded in Arts and Humanities in 2005 for being “forthright, visionary, ethical and, above all, professional”. The institution said it had long been considering the action when the allegations of corruption were levied against him and had withdrawn the degree since October but decided to reveal it now.
The citation for Blatter’s honorary degree said: “He is forthright, visionary, ethical and, above all, professional.
“It is these qualities which have driven the development of the sport to the international position it holds today.”
