FIFA announcedÂ on Monday that one of four German journalists injured in a car crash on their way to a Confederations Cup semi-final match has died.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter sent his condolences to the family of freelance journalist Wolfgang Jost, who was in a car that went out of control on a road to Bloemfontein June 24, when the four men were headed for the semi-final between the United States and Spain. Police said no other car was involved.
â€œItâ€™s a very sad situation but we are not the masters of our destiny,â€ Blatter told reporters at the post-Confederations Cup media conference at Ellis Park. Blatter and the media stood for a minuteâ€™s silence as a mark of respect to Jost.
