Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone has escaped a UEFA ban.

Huddlestone has avoided punishment for his apparent elbow on an opponent in Tottenham's Champions League thrashing of FC Twente.

Twente forward Marc Janko claimed Spurs midfielder Huddlestone deliberately "smashed his arm into my face" and left him with a nosebleed during last Wednesday's Group A clash at White Hart Lane.

But, after viewing video footage of the incident, UEFA confirmed that Huddlestone had no case to answer.

A spokesperson said: "UEFA's disciplinary department looked into the matter and decided not to open a case."
