UEFA has fined Olympiakos €60,000 after their fans twice approached Barcelona’s Lionel Messi on the field during their Champions League clash with Barcelona which ended 0-0 last month.
One male fan hugged and kissed him near the corner flag, while the other approached him for a selfie photograph late in the match.
The Greek champions Olympiakos were found guilty of “field invasions by supporters” among a range of charges which also included “illicit chants” by Olympiakos fans who also aimed laser pointers at Barcelona players.
Olympiakos have till Friday to appeal or accept the charges.
