UEFA fine Olympiakos €60,000 after fans approach Lionel Messi
UEFA has fined Olympiakos €60,000 after fans twice approached Barcelona's Lionel Messi on the field during a Champions League game last month.
Greek champions Olympiakos were found guilty of "field invasions by supporters" among a range of charges relating to the Oct. 31 game.
Messi was hugged and kissed by a male fan near the corner flag, and he was approached by a fan for a selfie photograph late in the 0-0 draw in Piraeus.
The UEFA-imposed fine also included charges for "illicit chants" by Olympiakos fans who also aimed laser pointers at Barcelona players.
