Bournemouth have since confirmed that the steward has withdrawn his statement.

When it emerged that the police were investigating Sergio Aguero after a steward claimed the Man City striker had hit him, the footage taken by fans in the ground was unclear.
It was obvious that Aguero was upset, and that the police had to intervene, but new footage has emerged that shows the Argentinian striker was trying to help a Manchester City fan who was being absolutely manhandled for entering the pitch.
With two large stewards pinning him to the ground in a position that looked unnecessarily painful, Aguero intervened to try and get them to ease up, a steward then pushes Aguero, who pushes back.
The steward who filed that complaint should be embarrassed.
Despite clearly being completely in the right our eyes as well as the majority of football fans on social media, the sad reality is that he may still face punishment for raising his hands to a steward.
Hopefully the police throw the accusation in the bin, and hopefully, all the fuss over this incident forces the FA and the Premier League to sit down and find a solution where fans that do enter the pitch to celebrate are not treated like they are trying to assassinate a president.
