Three footballers shown on social media allegedly inhaling laughing gas via balloons have been suspended.

League One Swindon Town suspended Drissa Traore, Brandon Ormonde-Ottewill and Jeremy Balmy with immediate effect after they apparently took nitrous oxide, a legal high.

A club spokesman said: "The club have already started an internal investigation into the trio's recent conduct and they will not be considered for selection during this process.

"Swindon Town will be making no further comment until the investigation is complete".

The Robins, who are 15th in the table, lost 2-0 at Oldham Athletic on Tuesday.
