Police in Miami have released Conor McGregor after he was charged with robbery and criminal damage.

The UFC fighter was arrested at 5am local time on Monday after he allegedly smashed and stomped on a fan's phone before leaving with the phone in his possession. The fan had been taking photos of McGregor as he left a nightclub.

McGregor was released from jail after posting a $12,500 bond and has this morning addressed the incident on Instagram. Alongside a photo of himself leaving court, the Dubliner posted 'Patience in this world is a virtue I continue to work on. I love my fans dearly. Thank you all.'

Miami Beach Police stated that they had 'arrested and charged Conor McGregor, DOB: 7/14/88, with Strong Arm Robbery and Criminal Mischief, both felonies' and posted an image of the arrest report.
