The incident is understood to be between Charlton’s Jonathan Leko and Leeds’ goalkeeper Kiko Casilla. 
Referee John Brooks was made aware of the incident and included it in his match report which the FA will investigate further. 
The incident overshadows a game Charlton won 1-0 thanks to a Macauley Bonne strike.
