Adam Johnson eliminated from FIFA 16 computer game after child sex offences

Disgraced footballer Adam Johnson has actually been eliminated from among the world's most popular computer games.

EA Sports, makers of FIFA 16, stated the footballer who was dealing with prison over kid sex offences has actually been taken out of the active rosters of Sunderland and England.

The games giant was working on eliminating him from other modes of the video game "as soon as possible".

The move followed calls from consumers that the shamed 28-year-old should not belong to an online game so popular with children.

Johnson was sacked by Sunderland and visited his boot sponsor adidas when he admitted grooming and kissing a 15-year-old fan.

He was informed on Wednesday that a jail term was "almost inevitable" after a jury convicted him of a more serious charge of sex with a child.

EA Sports stated: "Adam Johnson has been eliminated from the active lineups of both Sunderland and England in FIFA 16.

"We're working to eliminate him from other modes within the video game as quickly as possible.".

The video game uses real-life statistics to update gamers' type over the internet each week, making the game more practical. That means the next update can wipe him from that part of the online game.
