Italy's sporting tribunal has been unable to find proof that Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba was racially insulted by Torino's Riccardo Meggiorini during a bad-tempered derby last week.

The sporting judge, Gianpaolo Tosel, ruled that there will be no sanction against Meggiorini because the evidence from other players was contradictory. "The huge amount of evidence gathered does not allow me to make a certain judgement, beyond all reasonable doubt, regarding any racist connotations," said Tosel in his report.
