Atletico Mineiro's spirit has pushed them into the Copa do Brasil final.

Over the past few years, fans in the pleasant if unglamorous city of Belo Horizonte in southeastern Brazil have grown used to waking up with collective celebratory hangovers.

Club officials did not elaborate. Jo had already been punished by the club this year after failing to arrive at training on time. He had claimed he was suffering family problems.

Jo missed matches before playing...
