Michel Platini Resigns As UEFA President After Ban Appeal Fails

Michel Platini on 9 May resigned as Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) president after Court of Arbitration of Sports (CAS) upheld the ban imposed by FIFA.


The CAS rejected the appeal saying it was not convinced about the legitimacy of the payment ordered by ex-FIFA president Sepp Blatter. However, CAS effectively reduced the ban on him from six years to four and reduced the fine from 80000  Swiss francs to 60000 Swiss francs. 

So let’s do:
1. Expand the term UEFA ?
2. Name the person, who has resigned as Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) president ?
