Toulon flanker Steffon Armitage is reportedly cleared of doping charges in France.

Toulon flanker Steffon Armitage has reportedly been cleared of doping charges in France.

The England international was banned after testing positive for morphine following his side's defeat to Toulon at the end of last season.

The 27-year-old and his club both denied the charge, insisting that the banned substance was found in his system due to painkillers that were used to treat a back problem.

The French Rugby Federation have now cleared the player, according to The Telegraph.

Armitage joined Toulon from London Irish in 2011.
