AN on-air argument which saw Ian Wright imitate Roy Keane's Irish accent live on ITV last month was "intended in good humour", Ofcom has said.
The TV watchdog assessed the spat after a number of viewers complained about Wright's punditry following England's defeat to Croatia in the World Cup semi-final on July 11.
Wright mocked the way ex-Manchester United skipper Keane pronounced "final" in a row over whether England fans had been too arrogant during the tournament in Russia.

Ofcom assessed the complaints but decided against a full investigation.
“We carefully assessed complaints from viewers who objected to one pundit imitating another’s accent,” it said.
“However, we found the exchange was intended in good humour.”
The spat appeared to do little harm to Wright and Keane's relationship, with Wrighty posting a smiley image of the pair shortly later:
