Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter has undergone minor surgery to treat skin cancer.
Blatter’s spokesman, Thomas Renggli, told The Associated Press that he is at “home and fine” after a surgical procedure on his left ear.
The 80-year-old spent one night at a clinic before being discharged on Thursday, Renggli says.
Blatter spent several days in a hospital in Zurich last November after a stress-related collapse while he was suspended from duty by the FIFA ethics committee and subjected to criminal proceedings by federal prosecutors in Switzerland.
Blatter’s appeal against his six-year ban from football will be heard on Aug. 25 at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Blatter’s 18-year stint as FIFA president ended in February when former UEFA official Gianni Infantino was elected.
