Police will take no further action against the man accused of racially abusing former Ipswich Town and England footballer Kieron Dyer.
Dyer alleged that two men at Hintlesham Golf Club had made racist comments towards him on July 24.
Suffolk police subsequently arrested a man aged in his 50s on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence and on suspicion of a malicious communications offence.

A spokesman said there was “insufficient evidence” to proceed following a full investigation.
