NO ACTION will be taken against Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand for his clash with Chelsea striker Fernando Torres in the FA Cup on Sunday, the Football Association has confirmed.

Ferdinand appeared to barge the Spain international to the ground before helping him to his feet in an off-the-ball collision which went unseen by referee Howard Webb.

However, a spokesman for the FA told Press Association Sport that Ferdinand would not face retrospective action.
