The Football Association has banned Cristiano Ronaldo for two games and fined him £50,000 for hitting a mobile phone out of a fan’s hand at Everton.
Ronaldo, who is now a free agent following his release from Manchester United on Tuesday, had the altercation after a 1-0 defeat at Goodison Park on April 9.
The 37-year-old was cautioned by Merseyside Police after the incident.
The FA also charged him with improper conduct and an independent panel has handed down a suspension and hefty fine.
The forward admitted that his conduct after the final whistle of the Premier League game was improper.
An independent Regulatory Commission found that his conduct was both improper and violent during a subsequent hearing, and imposed these sanctions.
After the incident in April, Ronaldo posted an apology on Instagram. He said: “It’s never easy to deal with emotions in difficult moments such as the one we are facing.
“Nevertheless, we always have to be respectful, patient and set the example for all the youngsters who love the beautiful game.
“I would like to apologise for my outburst and, if possible, I would like to invite this supporter to watch a game at Old Trafford as a sign of fair play and sportsmanship.”
The ban will be transferred when Ronaldo joins a new club in any country, but does not count in the World Cup.
Ronaldo had accepted the FA charge but requested a personal hearing in a bid to try to avoid a suspension.
