Leicester and England prop Dan Cole on Monday escaped punishment for an alleged bite on an opponent in the Premiership champions' 32-15 win over Worcester.
The incident came during the second-half at Welford Road on Sunday, with pictures appearing to show Cole biting Worcester fly-half Ignacio Mieres.
The evidence was clear to see as blood seeped from the playmaker's fingers, an image which led former England winger Jon Sleightholme to call for Cole to be banned on Twitter.
However, the English Rugby Football Union has confirmed it will not punish Coles for the incident after consideration from citing commissioner Peter Larter.
"The RFU citing commissioner has viewed the incident many times and using all the available camera angles and believes it is accidental due to the dynamics of the contact as Dan Cole went to ground. No further action is to be taken," read an RFU statement.
The decision has not been contested as Worcester chose not to cite Cole themselves during the four-hour window they had.
