Failed drugs test was a relief - Livermore

Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore says his positive test for cocaine came as a relief and was the "get out of jail free card" he needed to start to come to terms with the death of his son.

The 26-year-old failed a drugs test in May 2015, almost a year after his newborn son Jake Junior died and the Football Association decided not to ban him because of "the unique nature of circumstances" involved.

Football Focus is on BBC One at 12:00 BST on Saturday, 27 August.
