Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein plans 'more open' Fifa if elected president

Fifa presidential candidate Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein says he wants to deliver "a more open" organisation.

The Jordanian prince, 39, will stand as a candidate at Fifa's presidential election on 29 May, when Sepp Blatter, 78, will seek a fifth term of office.

Ali is the brother-in-law of leading racehorse owner Sheikh Mohammed, the ruler of Dubai, and successfully championed the lifting of Fifa's ban on the hijab in women's football.
