The Football Association will take no action against referee Mark Clattenburg over a complaint by Chelsea that he used a racist remark towards one of their players.

The FA have decided there is "no case to answer" over the allegation the referee said "shut up you monkey" to midfielder John Obi Mikel.

An FA statement also said the complaint by Mikel's team-mate Ramires was "made in good faith".
