Italy prop Martin Castrogiovanni has been suspended by his club, Racing 92, after being pictured partying with Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Las Vegas.

The veteran forward reportedly made himself unavailable for Sunday's Champions Cup semi-final with Leicester, claiming he needed to travel to Argentina on urgent family business. Unfortunately for him, pictures have now emerged which show him topless, mid-jive, hanging out with Paris Saint-Germain players in Sin City and appearing to have a generally great time.

A statement on the club's website reads: "Following the publication in the media of photographs showing Martin Castrogiovanni with Paris Saint-Germain footballers this weekend at a hotel in Las Vegas, while the entire Racing squad was in Nottingham to contest a semi-final, Racing 92 have decided to suspend the player as a precautionary measure prior to launching legal proceedings."

The 34-year-old's future at the club is unclear. Racing beat Leicester 19-16 on Sunday, and will now face Saracens in the Champions Cup final on 14 May.
