Police say they haven't received any public complaints about the incident, but will continue to work with all relevant people involved.

After the match, Flower said: “I accept I’ll have to live with this for the rest of my career.

"It was a big night and I know I’ve taken the attention away from what was a special event.”

In Flowers absence, Wigan lost the match 14-6.
