SAO PAULO (Reuters) – Brazil’s football federation said President Marco Polo del Nero had asked for a leave of absence on Thursday in order to focus on defending himself from accusations made in an indictment by U.S. authorities.

Del Nero appointed the federation’s vice-president, Marcus Antonio Vicente, to take over as interim president.
