The UK Advertising Standards Authority has upheld a complaint against an ad by BetIndex which featured professional footballers under the age of 25.

The ad was displayed on Facebook in May and promoted the Football Index gambling app with text that stated: "Jadon Sancho is now the football stockmarket's third most valuable player, with many traders seeing handsome profits”.

It also listed the name, image and "Buy" and "Sell" values of many players, including Jadon Sancho, and featured images of Sancho alongside Raheem Sterling, Calum Hudson-Odoi, Kylian Mbappe and Marcus Rashford.
