Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein says he will stay in the running for the Fifa presidency after reports he could drop out.

The Jordanian had been quoted as saying he, along with candidates Michael van Praag and Luis Figo, could consider a single rival to incumbent Sepp Blatter.

But he says he has had good reactions from the governing bodies he has visited before the election on 29 May.

"I will continue the race until the end," he said.

Prince Ali, an outgoing member of the governing body's executive committee, told BBC World Service earlier this month: "The important thing is we support the person who has the best chance of making a change in Fifa."

The 79-year-old Swiss Blatter has been in charge of world football's governing body since 1998 and is seeking his fifth term as president.
