Police have dropped a probe into a clash between Manchester City footballer Craig Bellamy and a supporter who ran on to the pitch.

The supporter was pushed in the face by Bellamy who confronted him after he staged a solo pitch invasion at the end of Sunday's highly charged Manchester derby. Neither the fan nor the Wales international winger made a complaint to police about the clash but the supporter will appear in court later this month over the pitch encroachment.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: "We have received no complaints about this incident and are currently not investigating the matter."

Jake Joseph Clarke, 21, of Chorley, Lancashire, will appear before Trafford magistrates on September 30 charged with going on to a playing area without lawful authority or excuse.

He ran from the home supporters' section at Old Trafford as Manchester City took the kick-off following Michael Owen's dramatic late winner in United's 4-3 Premier League victory.
