The Chief Executive of Aston Villa Football Club, Keith Wyness, has been suspended from all football-related activity for three weeks by the Football Association for misconduct relating to a social media post.

The 59-year-old shared a Twitter video of Villa being denied a penalty during the final game of the Championship season against Brighton last month which had a caption questioning whether under-performing referees had "disabilities".

Mr Wyness was also fined £10,000 and ordered to complete an education course.
