Manchester United's outgoing chief executive David Gill has been elected to UEFA's executive committee. 

One of Gill's rivals for a seat, Portugal's Fernando Gomes, withdrew from the election at UEFA's Congress in London.

That left eight candidates for eight seats and Gill and the seven others were elected by acclamation.
