Former Arsenal and Manchester City winger Samir Nasri has been banned from football for six months following the investigation into the intravenous drip treatment he received in America last year.

The incident was said to have occurred in a Los Angeles clinic as the Frenchman was attended to by a private medical company, Drip Doctors, in his hotel room while on holiday.

Nasri was said to have complained of fever and vomiting before calling a doctor, his Maryland-based former girlfriend Dr Sarabjit Anand who provided an initial diagnosis.

He then received 500 milliliters of hydration in the form of sterile water containing micronutrient components on December 26, 2016 during his loan time at Sevilla from Manchester City.

Nasri's legal representative Juan de Dias Crespo Perez confirmed to the Press Association his client has now been handed a six-month suspension.

The Frenchman played for Arsenal from 2008 to 2011 before moving to City for £25 million and winning two Premier League titles.

During his loan spell at Sevilla last season he made 30 appearances and scored three goals.
