Angel Maria Villar has withdrawn from the UEFA presidential race, leaving the two remaining candidates squabbling over the vacant post.
Villar, who is head of Spain's football association, was considered one of the front-runners to succeed the former UEFA boss Michel Platini. His surprise decision leaves Slovenian FA chief Aleksander Ceferin and current UEFA vice president Michael van Praag, head of the Dutch FA, vying for European football's top job.
