Fabregas cleared of spitting charge

LONDON - Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has been cleared of a charge of spitting at Hull City's assistant manager after an FA Cup match in March.

"The FA can confirm that, at a Regulatory Commission hearing, two charges of improper conduct against Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas were found not proved," a statement on the FA's website said on Friday.

Fabregas, who did not play in the match, was charged with improper conduct last month after he was accused of spitting at Hull's Brian Horton. The Spaniard protested his innocence.

The other charge concerned his conduct after coming on to the pitch at the end of the match which Arsenal won 2-1.
