Neymar appeared to lash out at a fan after Paris St Germain's shock defeat to Rennes in the Coupe de France final

Neymar has been banned for three games by the FFF (French Football Federation) after appearing to punch a supporter following Paris Saint-Germain's defeat in the Coupe de France final last month.

The Brazilian forward was involved in an altercation with the fan as he ascended the stairs at the Stade de France to collect his runners-up medal.

He was filmed speaking to the member of the crowd for several seconds before lashing out and then walking away.
