Brazil's Gabriel Jesus has received a two-month international ban for his behaviour after he was sent off during the Copa America final last month.

Jesus, also fined $30,000 (£24,691), has seven days to appeal.

The striker is set to miss September's friendlies against Colombia and Peru.

The Manchester City forward, who scored in the 3-1 win over Peru, remonstrated with referee Roberto Tobar, kicked a water bottle and then pushed the VAR monitor as he left the pitch.

A statement from governing body Conmebol said: "Gabriel Jesus is suspended for two months from the day following the notification of this decision.

"Consequently, the player is suspended to play official and friendly matches with his national team in that period of time."
