Scandal-hit French football chief Noel Le Graet quits

FRENCH Football Federation president Noel Le Graet resigned today following accusations of sexual and psychological harassment, bringing to an end an 11-year spell in charge.  

The 81-year-old’s time at the helm had coincided with the revival of the French men’s national team as a force, with their victory at the 2018 World Cup followed by a run to last year’s final in Qatar, which they lost on penalties to Argentina.
