World Rugby has confirmed that an unnamed Samoa player has been provisionally suspended following an initial investigation into an alleged incident in the tunnel area after a Rugby World Cup Sevens match in San Francisco.

The incident allegedly took place after the match between Samoa and Wales yesterday.

A World Rugby statement says that the alleged behaviour was "not aligned with the sport's values and the excellent spirit in which this competition has been played by the 40 participating teams.

World Rugby has instigated an investigation and it would be inappropriate to make any further comment until the conclusion of that process.
