These were the best Sepp Blatter jokes circulating on Twitter as news spread that Vladimir Putin had endorsed him for the Nobel Peace Prize.
The Russian president said:
He [Blatter] is a very reputable person who has contributed greatly to the development of modern football. His contribution to the global humanitarian field is enormous.
He has always tried to use football, not just for sport, but as a tool for fostering cooperation between people. He has done a lot to develop world football. We should give him the Nobel peace prize.
Putin’s approval of course has nothing to do with the fact that Russia was controversially awarded the 2018 World Cup, no siree.
Anyway, on with the Sepp Blatter jokes…

If there was Nobel Prize for being lying sack of shit, then Putin and Blatter would split it. https://t.co/bVT5ncfk2k
