The FA are planning talks with England team doctor Rob Chakraverty following allegations that in his previous job at UK Athletics he mishandled thyroid medication given to a Team GB athlete.

Former middle-distance runner Emma Jackson claimed in the Mail On Sunday that the matter caused her health problems and brought a premature end to her career.

The FA refused to confirm to Sportsmail on Sunday night that Chakraverty's position as the senior medic to the England squad is secure ahead of this summer's European Championship and said they would speak to him about the allegations, stopping some way short of giving him their full backing.
