Geneva - FIFA president Sepp Blatter's driving licence was suspended for a month after an accident last October while he was overtaking in his sportscar, the Swiss news agency ATS reported on Monday.

The 73-year-old head of world football's governing body collided with another vehicle heading in the opposite direction, authorities in central Switzerland said.

Blatter was not hurt in the accident in the Bernese Oberland, but the driver of the oncoming car was slightly injured, ATS reported.

Authorities took Blatter's clean driving record into account and described it as an offence of "medium" severity. He was also ordered to pay costs of 200 Swiss francs.
