Sepp Blatter’s lawyer says that the Fifa president has told his staff he has done “nothing illegal or improper”.

Mr Blatter was back at Fifa headquarters, three days after being interrogated by Swiss investigators at the scandal-battered governing body’s headquarters.

A statement from Mr Blatter’s attorney, Richard Cullen, said the president “informed the staff that he was cooperating with the authorities, reiterated that he had done nothing illegal or improper and stated that he would remain as president of Fifa”.

Mr Blatter is expected to hand over power in February when an emergency election is held, triggered by the president’s resignation statement four days after being re-elected for a fifth term in May.
