Sent off in the Copa América final, Brazil forward Jesus has been banned for two months by CONMEBOL.

Brazil star Jesus handed two-month international ban

Brazil star Gabriel Jesus has been handed a two-month international ban by CONMEBOL for his behaviour during the Copa América final last month.

Jesus scored and provided an assist before being sent off in Brazil's 3-1 win over Peru at the Maracana on July 7.

Argues with referee, pushes VAR monitor after final red

The Manchester City forward remonstrated with the referee after receiving a second yellow card before pushing the VAR monitor and crying in the tunnel.

CONMEBOL announced a two-month ban for Jesus on Wednesday, a statement saying "the player is suspended to play official and friendly matches with his national team in that period of time".

Jesus also fined, now has a week to appeal

Jesus was also fined $30,000 and is set to miss friendlies against Colombia and Peru next month, but has seven days to appeal the sanctions.

Meanwhile, Copa América hosts and champions Brazil were fined $15,000 and warned for the behaviour of their fans.

Jesus ban follows Messi, Medel punishments

It has been a busy period post-Copa América for CONMEBOL, with Argentina star Lionel Messi and Chile's Gary Medel also receiving bans and fines.
