BREAKING: Arnautovic handed a one-match ban for insulting a player 

Austria forward Marko Arnautovic has been a one-match ban for 'insulting' North Macedonia ace Gjanni Alioski. 

Arnautovic will miss Austria's second match of the Euro 2020 against the Netherlands on Thursday evening through the suspension. UEFA revealed on Tuesday that it had appointed an ethics and disciplinary inspect to investigate the player's outburst with reports suggesting that if he was found guilty, then he could miss the remainder of the season. 

Arnautovic, who is of Serbian heritage, appeared to make comments towards opposition players and then turned towards spectators. 

The tournament organizers said in a statement that its appeals body had decided to "suspend Austrian Football Association player, Marko Arnautovic, for the next (1) UEFA representative team competition match for which he would be otherwise eligible, for insulting another player".
