By Sohee Kim SEOUL (Reuters) - Chung Mong-joon, the billionaire scion of South Korea's Hyundai conglomerate, says he will "carefully consider" running for the FIFA presidency, following Sepp Blatter's unexpected decision to resign as the head of world soccer's governing body. Chung, a former member of FIFA's powerful Executive Committee and a fierce critic of Blatter, also told a news conference in Seoul on Wednesday he would meet other international football powerbrokers before making any decision.

Greece and its international creditors are at a critical phase in talks to reach a deal to unlock 7.2 billion euros ($8.0 billion) to help Athens make Friday's 300 million euro repayment to the IMF. Without a deal by the end of this week, fears are growing that Greece could default, possibly setting off a chain reaction that could end with a messy exit from the eurozone and cause havoc to the economy in Europe and the world.
