• Grindel given watch by Grigoriy Surkis, a Uefa vice president
• ‘There was and is no conflict of interest for me’
The German football federation president, Reinhard Grindel, has resigned after coming under increasing pressure following allegations of undeclared earnings, the receipt of a luxury watch and discontent with his leadership.
Grindel, who promised greater transparency after taking over in April 2016, apologised for accepting a €6,000 watch from a Ukrainian businessman, Grigoriy Surkis, who is a Uefa vice president and executive committee member.
