"I won't be doing this again and hope that no one else is influenced into putting their health at risk by my actions."

It has not been confirmed by the Football Association whether Walker has been given a verbal warning, but the Spurs defender will not face any disciplinary action and will be available to Roy Hodgson for England's must win game against the Ukraine on Tuesday evening.

Walker was included in Hodgson's starting XI that beat Moldova 4-0 and is expected to start against the Ukraine in Kiev on Tuesday.
