Former FIFA President Sepp Blatter has been accused of sexual assault by the USA Women’s football team goalkeeper Hope Solo. Blatter assaulted her at the 2013 Ballon d’Or awards ceremony, Solo said.


“I had Sepp Blatter grab my ass,” she told Portuguese newspaper Expressor.

The assault happened just seconds before she  went on stage to present the FIFA women’s world player of the year award which her teammate Abby Wambach won.

“This allegation is ridiculous,” Blatter’s spokesperson said in response.

Speaking to Guardian, Solo said:

I was in shock and completely thrown off. I had to quickly pull myself together to present my team-mate with the biggest award of her career and celebrate with her in that moment, so I completely shifted my focus to Abby.
