Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey escapes action from the FA for making a 'swim away' gesture towards Cardiff City fans.

Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey will not face any disciplinary action from the Football Association following a gesture he made during last weekend's South Wales derby.

The former Liverpool player appeared to make a 'swim away' action, which refers to an alleged incident where Swansea fans chased their rivals into the sea, to Cardiff City fans following the Swans' 1-0 defeat.

According to BBC Sport, a spokesman from the English governing body said: "Following an investigation, the FA has reminded Jonjo Shelvey of his responsibilities. No further action will follow."

Swansea are preparing for their Europa League clash against Kuban Krasnodar this evening.
