Stand-in FIFA boss Issa Hayatou appeared to fall asleep during the Executive Committee meeting on Thursday. The 69-year-old was pictured closing his eyes and enjoying a moment to himself while talks of a reform in the game's governing body took place.
Hayatou is acting as president while the incumbent Sepp Blatter serves a 90-day ban from all football activity following an irregular payment to Michel Platini.
But while chairing the meeting on changes in the governing body, it all appeared to become too much for Hayatou as he dozed up.
Video footage of the man in charge of football's world governing body during Blatter's 90-day suspension appears to show the 69-year-old falling asleep.
The Cameroonian's eyes appear to be closed and his head struggles to stay up before his eyes light up and dart around the room as if checking to see if anyone had noticed. Unfortunately, they had.
