Bobby Madley has quit his role as a Premier League referee.

The cause of his sudden retirement is not yet clear, although the Telegraph have reported that it could be something to do with a video posted on social media, although that is not confirmed.

The official from West Yorkshire was not present at last week's meeting of all select group referees at St George's Park, where they were tested and prepared for the season.

He has been a referee since 2013 and has taken charge of high-profile matches, making him one of the 18 professionals in the English league.

Madley's colleagues had not been informed about the news by their organisation, Professional Game Match Officials, before an official statement was made.

The 32-year-old was one of those the Premier League had hoped go on to be one of Europe's leading referees and the circumstances around his departure are still unclear.

The PGMOL had 18 referees to cover Premier League matches this season but are now limited to 17.

Madley was also on FIFA's list of officials, making him eligible to take charge of worldwide fixtures.

He had refereed the Community Shield game between Arsenal and Chelsea in August past year too.
