The Chairman of The Football Association Greg Dyke has issued the following statement following developments at FIFA on Wednesday morning.

"We should stress this morning's developments are very serious for FIFA and its current leadership.

"As one of the associations who nominated Prince Ali it will not surprise you to learn that if the election for president goes ahead The FA will be voting for him. However, there must be a question mark over whether the election should take place in these circumstances.

"Clearly things are changing very quickly and our delegation to the FIFA congress in Zurich, which I am leading, will discuss the position and what we should do about it with our colleagues in UEFA when we meet tomorrow morning."
