British comedian Simon Brodkin says he is waiting to hear whether he will face charges over his headline-grabbing prank with Fifa president Sepp Blatter.
Brodkin was arrested by Swiss police in July when he showered Blatter with money at a news conference.
“Think about the irony of me being the first person to be prosecuted for things that have happened at Fifa headquarters,” he told BBC Sport.

The attorney general’s office said on Friday he was suspected of criminal mismanagement or misappropriation over a TV rights deal and of a “disloyal payment” to European football chief Michel Platini.
Brodkin’s Blatter stunt was shown around the world and was used again in the latest coverage of the scandal engulfing Fifa, world football’s governing body.
He describes how the prank came about, an exchange with Blatter, the police reaction, and also talks about almost boarding England’s plane en route to the 2014 World Cup and interrupting rapper Kanye West’s Glastonbury set.

Contrary to reports, Brodkin said he did not use fake money but bought $500.
