LONDON -- CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb has been hospitalized in London after becoming ill on a flight.

The 48-year-old Webb was forced to cancel a speech Wednesday at the Leaders in Football Conference at Stamford Bridge, two days after feeling sick on the flight.

Conference organizers said in a statement that Webb was tested at a hospital for shortness of breath and doctors consider him "in good condition."

Webb succeeded Jack Warner in May as president of soccer's governing body for North and Central America and the Caribbean. Warner quit in 2011 in the middle of a corruption investigation.
