A Chelsea fan will face no further action after he was accused of making a racist gesture during the club's League Cup match with Manchester United in October.

The 28-year-old was arrested and banned by the Blues during the police's investigation, but after "taking witness statements from those around him and viewing CCTV" no further action will be taken.

Police say the decision not to charge was taken with the Crown Prosecution Service.
