Britain's former FIFA Vice President Jim Boyce lost the rag with a German TV journalist yesterday and threatened the man with court action after the journalist asked him a question he took serious issue with about "colleagues facing jail"

Boyce exited the FIFA stage yesterday and remained a stanch supporter of Blatter up until the very end, defending the embattled FIFA President

I think it has improved greatly, I know that FIFA four years ago the amount of criticism was unbelievable. There have been a lot of changes and a lot of new people there, fresh voices and the members of the executive committee feeling they are allowed to express their views. There is more transparency and openness.

"Having said that the big problem FIFA have is trying to get away from this image that everyone is corrupt. They do a lot of good work that is not properly recognised."

Boyce's replacement is former Manchester United CEO David Gill who carried out his threat of not taking his seat on the executive committee of FIFA if Blatter was relected.
