Blatter drops another hint he will stand again

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has dropped another hint that he intends to stand for a fifth term as the head of football's governing body in next year's election.

Blatter says his mission's not yet complete, though his mandate is certainly coming to its end.

The 78-year-old was elected unopposed for a fourth term in 2011 after his rival Mohamed Bin Hammam withdrew his candidacy over accusations of offering cash for votes. Bin Hammam was later banned for life.

Blatter initially said it would be his final term but since then has hinted at a change of mind.
