Dele Alli will miss Tottenham Hotspur's first game back following the coronavirus-enforced break after being banned by the Football Association for a video posted online mocking Covid-19.
The FA confirmed on Thursday that Alli has been fined, banned for one match, and will have to undergo a re-education course.
Their statement read: "Dele Alli has been suspended for one match with immediate effect, fined £50,000 and must undertake an education course following a breach of FA Rule E3.
"The Tottenham Hotspur player denied that a social media post breached FA Rule E3(1), as it was insulting and/or improper and/or brought the game into disrepute, and constituted an “Aggravated Breach”, which is defined in FA Rule E3(2), as it included a reference, whether express or implied, to race and/or colour and/or ethnic origin and/or nationality.
"However, it was subsequently found proven by an independent Regulatory Commission."
