Shelvey warned by FA after gestures

Jonjo Shelvey made the gesture against Cardiff

Jonjo Shelvey has been "reminded of his responsibilities" by the Football Association after the Swansea midfielder made provocative gestures during the all-Welsh Premier League derby against Cardiff.

The FA investigated the incident where Shelvey made swimming gestures - an apparent reference to an alleged 1988 incident in which Cardiff fans went into the sea as supporters clashed.

An FA spokesman said: "Following an investigation, the FA has reminded Jonjo Shelvey of his responsibilities. No further action will follow."
