16:15 The first round of voting is over


The votes have been counted, no winner has been announced and we're going into a second round. Gianni Infantino received the highest number of votes (88) - three more than his nearest rival Sheikh Salman, but not enough for a two thirds majority (138).

Prince Ali bin al-Hussein got 27 votes and Jérome Champagne just 7. Tokyo Sexwale had earlier withdrawn from the contest.

In round two, candidates need just a clear majority (more than 50%) to win. That's 104 votes to win.
