FIFA president Sepp Blatter was money bombed at a FIFA press conference by British comedian Lee Nelson.
Nelson, who has also pranked Kanye West with his antics, approached Blatter during the conference and placed a pile of cash in front of him. While being taken away by security Nelson through money all over Blatter.
Blatter has been a target of ridicule in recent months following allegations and US lead charges of corruption within FIFA. He was relected to the FIFA presidency in early summer of 2015, but has promised elections for a new president.
Blatter has served as the president of the soccer league since 1998.
