FIFA has come out to congratulate participants at the world cup saying no positive doping tests have been recorded during the World Cup, while also confirming that disciplinary proceedings have started against England for “possible discriminatory” chanting.

A total of 2,037 tests have been conducted since January with every participating player at Russia 2018 tested in unannounced controls before the competition, as well as undergoing further tests during the tournament.

However, chants by England fans during their World Cup semi-final defeat to Croatia on Wednesday are being investigated by the governing body.
