London, October 12: Ben Stokes has had his contract with New Balance terminated, the sports equipment manufacturer announced on Wednesday.

Stokes earlier on Wednesday apologised to Katie Price and her disabled son Harvey after a video emerged of the England all-rounder impersonating the pair, reports the Mirror.

The video came to light shortly after Stokes was placed under investigation by police after being arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm following an incident outside a Bristol nightclub last month.

New Balance said in a statement: "New Balance does not condone behaviour by our global athletes that does not match our brand culture and values, and therefore we have ended our relationship with Ben Stokes, effective October 11, 2017.

"We will not provide further comment."

This comes after the England and Wales Cricket Board announced that the 26-year-old will not travel to Australia with the rest of the Ashes squad 'at this stage'.
