Sepp stocking filler.
AFTER months of public humiliation Sepp Blatter can finally savour a triumph - of sorts!
FIFA's president (right) has been castigated for his handling of the 2018 and 2022 World Cup final selections and last week's collapse of the suppliers of FIFA merchandise that will cost football's governing body pounds 20m. But there's some good news for Septic.
In the past year, underwear maker Gossard has seen sales of suspenders rise by 65 per cent on the previous year.
Don't forget that in the Seventies Blatter was elected president of the World Society of Friends of Suspenders, an organisation which tried to stop women replacing suspender belts with tights. So Bladder's a winner, after all.
