Nicolas Anelka could not be proven to have intentionally promoted anti-Semitism by performing a "quenelle" salute, the independent regulatory commission that banned the West Bromwich Albion striker has revealed.

Anelka, 34, was given a five-game suspension, as well as an £80,000 (€ 97,000, $133,000) fine last week after making the gesture during his side's 3-3 draw at West Ham United in the Premier League in December.
