2:08 pm on 10 January 2009

The Spanish football federation has fined Sevilla striker Frederic Kanoute for uncovering a T-shirt with the word "Palestine" written on it in several languages.

He paraded the T-shirt after scoring in this week's 2-1 win over Deportivo Coruna in the King's Cup.

The referee booked Kanoute for the gesture at the time.

But the RFEF says in a statement it has fined the Mali international, who is a Muslim, an unspecified amount.
