Russia midfielder Denis Cheryshev has been cleared of a doping violation after anti-doping authorities found no "signs of irregular behaviour".

The 27-year-old, on loan at Valencia from Villarreal, was investigated after his father revealed his son had used growth hormone (HGH) treatment.

But Spain's anti-doping agency has now closed its investigation after finding no wrongdoing.

Cheryshev played five World Cup games as hosts Russia reached the last eight.
