LetGbe a finite group andpa prime divisor of |G|. Ap-Steinberg character ofGis an irreducible character χ ofGsuch that χ(x)=±|CG(x)|pfor everyp′-elementx∈G. A conjecture of W. Feit states that if a finite simple groupGhas ap-Steinberg character thenGis a finite simple group of Lie type in characteristicp. In this paper we prove this conjecture, using the classification of finite simple groups.
