Rugby player Israel Folau has reached a settlement with Rugby Australia (RA) over his controversial sacking for writing anti-gay posts on social media.

The former Wallabies star had been suing RA for A$14m (£7.4m; $9.5m) after having his contract terminated in May.

Folau, a Christian, argued that the termination of his contract was a case of religious discrimination.
