Coca-Cola and McDonald’s have called for Sepp Blatter to step down immediately as Fifa president.

American drinks company Coca-Cola said: “Every day that passes Fifa’s image and reputation continues to tarnish.”

Fast-food chain McDonald’s, also a key Fifa sponsor, said Blatter’s resignation would be “in the best interest of the game”.

Blatter, who is due to stand down in February 2016, is the subject of a criminal investigation.

Last week the Swiss, 79, said he would not stand down before February.
