Josep Maria Bartomeu re-elected as Barcelona president for second term

Josep Maria Bartomeu is re-elected for a second term as the president of La Liga giants Barcelona after holding off competition from Joan Laporta.

Josep Maria Bartomeu has been re-elected as Barcelona's president for a second term after beating off competition from Joan Laporta.

The 52-year-old Bartomeu will now lead the Catalan club for the next six years having received 54.63% of votes from the club's members.

Bartomeu took over the club earlier this year after former president Sandro Rosell stood down, following controversy surrounding the transfer of Brazilian striker Neymar.

The re-elected head first joined Barcelona's board under opponent and former president Laporta as the executive head of the club's basketball and handball teams.
