Former Ballon d'Or victor, George Weah Wins Liberia Presidential Election'

The election, held on Tuesday, 51-year-old Weah has defeated its main rival, the incumbent Vice-President Joseph Bokaya.

"It is not often that you have a former player who becomes a president of a country", Wenger was quoted on the online platform.

The episode prompted officials from Mr. Weah's party and the party of Alexander Cummings, a former Coca-Cola executive, to lodge complaints with the elections commission. The former Fifa World Footballer of the Year has long turned a politician with aspiration to be Liberia's President.

However, most analysts expect it to go to a second round, as a candidate needs more than 50% of the votes for outright victory.
