The Football Association has confirmed that it is launching an internal investigation into allegations of sexual abuse in football.
The announcement comes after multiple ex-players came forward to claim that they had been sexually abused as children by former Crewe Alexandra coach Barry Bennell.
An NSPCC helpline was launched earlier this week in light of the allegations, and it has since been reported that over 100 calls have been made to the number.
The FA said in a statement: "We are working closely with the police to support their lead investigations and must ensure we do not do anything to interfere with or jeopardise the criminal process.
"The internal review will look into what information the FA was aware of at the relevant times around the issues that have been raised in the press, what clubs were aware of, and what action was or should have been taken."
The FA has instructed independent leading counsel Kate Gallafent QC to assist it with its review.
