Pep Guardiola has been fined £20,000 for wearing a yellow ribbon on the touchline, the Football Association has announced.

The Manchester City manager has also been warned as to his future conduct by the governing body after accepting a charge of "wearing a political message".

Guardiola has argued wearing the symbol, in support of imprisoned politicians in Catalonia, is not political but accepts it is in breach of the FA's regulations.

Catalonia-born Guardiola has not apologised but said he will stop wearing the ribbon during games in order to observe - rather than respect - the rules.

Guardiola will continue to wear the ribbon for pre- and post-match media commitments, as is permitted. The FA's kit and advertising regulations refer specifically to the technical area during games.
