It's another right royal mess, Sepp.

Byline: BRIAN READE

SEPP BLATTER was very dismissive of criticism of African football authorities following the riot during the Ghana v Equatorial Guinea game.

Mainly because most of them live in his back pocket.

His response to reports of objects being thrown at players and fans? Blatter (above) said: "We never talk about princesses marrying any more." Maybe not Sepp.

But we do talk of other royal matters.

Of Machiavellian monarchs running corrupt courts, exploiting their subjects, being aided by bribed sycophants, believing they rule by divine right and sitting on their thrones doing little else but count up their mountains of gold.

Or have you stopped Googling yourself?
