UEFA appoints Theodoridis as Infantino's interim replacement

Updated: 

UEFA has appointed Theodore Theodoridis as its general secretary ad interim.

Theodoridis takes over temporarily from Gianni Infantino, who was elected as the new FIFA president last Friday.

In a release announcing Theodoridis' appointment, UEFA also reiterated no presidential elections will take place until the Court of Arbitration for Sport comes to a decision on Michel Platini's six-year ban from all football-related activity.
