Lazio fined for breaking Covid-19 protocols

For violating Covid-19 protocols, Serie A club Lazio has been fined 150,000 euros (£128,000) and president Claudio Lotito, suspended for seven months.

According to an investigation by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), the club failed to report positive coronavirus cases to local health authorities.

In addition, after receiving positive coronavirus tests, Lazio allowed three players to train.

They also twice fielded asymptomatic players who should have been isolating.

Two team doctors have also been suspended for 12 months.

During an investigation into alleged procedure breaches, Lazio's training ground was investigated and swab test results were taken away in November of last year.

The FIGC filed charges in February and the case was referred to a national federal court, which issued its ruling on Friday.

Lazio had denied any wrongdoing and said in a statement, "We trust in sporting justice." They had been charged with a "lack of observance of the in-force health protocols."
