The Metropolitan Police are no longer investigating a complaint made against referee Mark Clattenburg.

The Society of Black Lawyers asked police to investigate whether there was a racially-aggravated element to the "inappropriate language" Chelsea claim Clattenburg used to John Obi Mikel.

But neither Mikel nor the club have been to the police, and in the absence of any evidence the investigation is no longer active, reports

A statement from the Met read: "Enquires were made and no victims have come forward.

"The matter will remain as a recorded incident, but without a victim and/or any evidence that any offence has been committed, the matter cannot currently be investigated.

"Clearly if the situation changes and a victim and/or evidence to support the allegation of a crime comes to police attention then further enquiries will, if appropriate, be made."
