The Fifa president Sepp Blatter walked out of a press conference after being showered with fake dollar bills by the British comedian Lee Nelson.
Nelson, whose real name is Simon Brodkin, illegally gained entry to the Fifa headquarters in Zurich and poured dozens of fake banknotes over the stage around where Blatter was seated after announcing himself as a North Korean World Cup delegate.
“This is nothing to do with football … we need to clean here first,” Blatter said before leaving the stage while the money was cleared and Nelson was ejected from the building.
Blatter was speaking at the Fifa executive committee meeting, which had been called to set the date for the extraordinary elective congress, which has now been confirmed as 26 February next year.
Last year, Nelson attempted to board the England World Cup plane and mingled with the players. Earlier this summer, the comedian interrupted Kanye West’shotly anticipated headline slot at Glastonbury festival.
“I am still alive, the waves of the tsunami have not taken me away,” Blatter said on returning to the stage.
