Last Updated: 10/09/19 1:21pm
Everton defender Yerry Mina has been fined £10,000 by the FA and warned about his future conduct after being found guilty of breaching betting regulations.
The Everton defender, who arrived at Goodison Park from Barcelona in August 2018, was found to be in breach of FA Rule E8(3), by participating in an advertisement for betting activity which he is prohibited from engaging in.
He was charged in July after he appeared in an advert for a betting firm in his native Colombia earlier this year.

The 24-year-old admitted the charge of misconduct at the earliest possible opportunity and apologised for his mistake.
The FA Regulatory Commission has published the written reasons behind the decision, which reveal all money Mina received was donated to the player's own foundation - to help disadvantaged young people from his hometown.
Mina has played in all four of Everton's Premier League games this season.
The centre-back featured in Colombia's 2-2 draw with Brazil last Saturday and could be in contention for selection ahead of his country's friendly against Venezuela.
