Ben Stokes has been dropped by his kit manufacturer, New Balance.

The England all-rounder is currently under police investigation for his part in a late-night brawl in Bristol last month.

The company issued a statement saying his behaviour "does not match our brand culture and values" and that his contract, worth an estimated 200,000 a year, had been terminated.

The announcement came shortly after Stokes had tweeted an apology for a separate incident, in which he apparently mocked the disabled son of British celebrity Katie Price, and with his involvement in the Ashes increasingly uncertain.
