The Football Association has announced it will take no disciplinary action against Fernando Torres following an incident involving Jan Vertonghen during Chelsea's Premier League match against Tottenham on Saturday.
The Chelsea forward, who appeared to scratch the Tottenham defender on the face during the 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane, was later sent off - but will now serve just a one-match ban.
An FA statement read: "One of the match officials saw the coming together of the two players, albeit not in its entirety.
"In these particular circumstances, in line with the FA's policy on when retrospective action may be taken, reviewed this summer by the game's stakeholders, no action may be taken."
Torres was shown a yellow card following the first coming together and collected his second booking after a aerial tussle with the Belgian during the second half.
Vertonghen is expected to make a full recovery despite having no injury whatsoever
