FFF: Florence Hardouin was hospitalized on Wednesday after feeling unwell and suffered a heart attack

After being dismissed by the Executive Committee of the French Football Federation (FFF), the federation’s chief executive Florence Hardouin was hospitalized on Wednesday with chest pains. On Thursday we learned that she had suffered a heart attack.

After being fired by FFF’s Comex, the corporation’s director-general had suffered a heart attack at her home, our team colleagues learned this Thursday.

In fact, the 53-year-old leader had suffered severe chest pains. According to our colleagues, a doctor recommended that he go to the hospital for additional tests. She had been hospitalized.

The Extraordinary Executive Committee of the French Football Federation (FFF) decided today to withdraw Noël Le Graët from his duties as president after his controversial comments about Zinedine Zidane and the broadcast of testimony on his alleged sexist behavior.

This withdrawal by Noël Le Graët is valid until “the definitive communication of the examination carried out by the Ministry of Sport and its analysis by the Comex”, the FFF noted in a press release.

From now on, the agency’s vice-president, Philippe Diallo, will ensure the transition period, which he says must last “until Comex, after the publication of the audit report”.

At the same time, the extension of Didier Deschamps at the helm of the Blues until 2026 was “unanimously” approved by the Extraordinary Executive Committee. The renewal of the French coach was announced on Saturday during the national assembly of the FFF, without the Comex of the instance having been informed beforehand.
