Lord Herman Ouseley, Chair of Kick It Out, said: “The FA has shown leadership and intent through what has clearly been a difficult and complex complaint to deal with, and invested time and expertise to ensure this outcome.

“It has demonstrated that it will not stand for discrimination, something organisations such as FIFA and UEFA should take heed of.
