​Bundesliga players will face no action over anti-racism statements

Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho and other Bundesliga players will face no further disciplinary action after they made anti-racism statements during matches last weekend, reports BBC Sport.

England international Sancho unveiled a 'Justice for George Floyd' T-shirt after scoring against Paderborn.

Floyd, an unarmed black man, died while being restrained by a white Minneapolis police officer on 25 May.

Protests have been held across the United States and globally.

In a statement, the German Football Association (DFB) said no proceedings would take place against the four players "because of their solidarity and anti-racism statements".

It added: "The panel also intends to maintain this line in the event of renewed anti-racism campaigns to mark the violent death of George Floyd on the coming match days."
