The Football Association has received a vote of no confidence from MPs, amid calls for the Government to introduce laws to force it to reform.

Senior Conservative Damian Collins suggested ministers should intervene to overhaul English football's governing body because "turkeys won't vote for Christmas" and it will not reform itself.

FA chairman Greg Clarke has promised to step down if he fails to convince Sports Minister Tracey Crouch that the organisation is determined to make changes.

Ms Crouch described the vote of no confidence, which is non-binding, as "premature".
