FIRST ROUND VOTES

Gianni Infantino 88
Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim al-Khalifa 85
Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein 27
Jerome Champagne 7

Two-thirds majority not reached, second round of voting required.

While this is not a surprise, it does offer some intrigue as favourite Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim al-Khalifa finishes second behind Uefa general secretary Gianni Infantini. 

It seems possible that Jerome Champagne, with just seven votes, will pull out of the race while the thought may be crossing Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein's mind also. Those 34 votes, once redistributed, could decide today's presidential 
winner. With just an outright majority required in the second round, Infantino has the upper hand for now.
