Arsenal's Adebayor escapes action

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has escaped punishment for his alleged headbutt on team-mate Nicklas Bendtner, the Football Association have announced.

Bendtner complained of being struck by his Gunners team-mate in the second half of Tuesday night's 5-1 Carling Cup defeat by Tottenham, but no action will be taken by the FA.

An FA spokesman said: "No formal disciplinary action will be taken against Emmanuel Adebayor.

"Both players will be written to remind them of their responsibilities."
