The German Football Association's Sports Court has decided not to suspend Jude Bellingham, 18, for his TV remarks about referee Felix Zwayer following the Bundesliga match between Borussia Dortmund and FC Bayern Munich last Saturday.

Speaking immediately after the final whistle, an emotional Bellingham cited an historical case of misconduct by Zwayer that was punished by the DFB several years ago.

The Sports Court deemed Bellingham's statement to be "unsporting behaviour" and have fined the English international.

Borussia Dortmund and the player have accepted the verdict and Jude Bellingham is therefore eligible to play in this Saturday's Bundesliga match away to VfL Bochum.
