The Fifa president Sepp Blatter walked out of a press conference after being showered with fake dollar bills by the British comedian Lee Nelson.
Nelson, whose real name is Simon Brodkin, illegally gained entry to the Fifa headquarters in Zurich and poured dozens of fake banknotes over the stage around where Blatter was seated after announcing himself as a North Korean World Cup delegate.
Security took the man away. Blatter took a break, returned for the press conference and said, "I just called my late mother, and she said, 'Don't worry, it's just a lack of education.'"
Blatter announced earlier this year that he would relinquish the most powerful job in soccer after FIFA executives were indicted by American prosecutors on corruption charges. FIFA will elect a new president in February.
