Jamie Vardy gets into the referee's face after he is handed a second yellow card and sent off for what the ref deemed to be a dive in Leicester City's match with West Ham United.

The Football Association has charged Jamie Vardy with improper conduct for the actions surrounding the red card he was given during Leicester City’s 2-2 draw with West Ham United on Sunday.

Leicester has also been charged as a team for its reaction to the 83rd minute penalty call that helped West Ham tie the score at 1.

Vardy faces an extra ban after appearing to swear at referee Jonathan Moss following the striker’s second yellow card.

The club and player have until Thursday evening to respond to the charges.
