Florentino Perez has been re-elected as Real Madrid president; this will be his fifth term in office and his sixth in total.
The septuagenarian ran unopposed in the election which was called last week by the club and was confirmed as the winner on Tuesday morning, April 13.
Perez has been serving as Madrid’s president for 12 years after since he took over from Ramon Calderon in June 2009.
Under Perez, Real Madrid took hold of their 10th Champions League crown in 2014.
A statement on the club’s website reads: “This Electoral Board, having seen only one candidacy presented and by virtue of article 40, section E, point 2 of the club’s current bylaws, proclaims Don Florentino Perez Rodriguez as president of Real Madrid.”
