Video footage has surfaced online which reportedly shows Ben Stokes allegedly punching a man outside of a nightclub. 

The England cricketer was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm on Monday following an incident outside a Bristol establishment. 

Police detained him overnight and released him without charge as all inquires into the events continue. 

Now, The Sun newspaper has obtained footage which reportedly shows a man bearing a resemblance to the England all-rounder punching a man in the street. 

The video shows a brawl shot from a high vantage point, with censored swearing audible, and the paper has handed the footage to police involved in the investigation. 

In a statement on Wednesday morning, the England and Wales Cricket Board confirmed they had seen the footage but would not comment as the police continue their line of inquiry.
