Major foreign papers reported almost immediately on the resignation of the Hungarian President, Mr. Pál Schmitt. It is not surprising, as many papers (e.g. Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Die Presse, etc.) followed lately the scandal surrounding the legitimacy of the President's doctoral degree. The news about the resignation appeared in the Guardian, Time and Irish Times, and also in major German and French titles including Bild, Der Tagesspiegel and Le Monde.
