The Chelsea captain, John Terry, has been banned for four matches for racially insulting QPR's Anton Ferdinand.
The Football Association, which runs football in England, has also fined him £220,000.
Terry has been found guilty of a charge of misconduct, following the game between the two teams last October.
The four match ban is half that given to Liverpool's Luis Suarez for using racist language last season.
Before the hearing began on Monday, John Terry announced his retirement from international football, which left England manager Roy Hodgson disappointed.
