Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier has been handed a four match ban and a £40,000 fine by the Football Association.

The England international became involved in a confrontation with a Tottenham supporter after his side’s FA Cup defeat by Norwich City in early March.

Dier scored a penalty in the shootout but saw Spurs lose 3-2 after the final spot-kick from Gedson Fernandes was saved by Tim Krul.

Videos of the incident were posted on social media that clearly showed Dier vaulting the advertising hoardings before clambering over several rows of seats to reach the supporter in question.

A heated exchange followed that saw the 26-year-old repeatedly lunge towards his target before stewards rushed over to intervene.

The Metropolitan Police had been made aware of the incident involving Dier, but no complaints or allegations have been made (Sky Sports).

There were 127 days between the incident and the punishmet being handed down by the FA.
