Suspended FIFA president Sepp Blatter says an overwhelming amount of stress almost killed him earlier this month.
Blatter said a stress-related illness hospitalized him for six days after he collapsed at his parents' graves in November.
In an interview with Swiss public broadcaster RTS, Blatter said, "I was between the angels who were singing and the devil who was lighting the fire, but it was the angels who sang. ... I was close to dying. At some stage, the body says, 'No, enough is enough.'"
