The sanctions have fallen. The four people identified, and arrested since, for hanging an inflatable doll bearing the image of Vinicius Jr from a viaduct in Madrid on 26 January, were fined €60,000 by the Commission against Violence, Racism, Xenophobia and Intolerance in Sport.
They are also banned from accessing sports facilities for a period of two years. This is indicated by the Spanish media "El Partidazo de Cope".

The four people incriminated are suspected of having also hung a banner that read "Madrid hates Real". They were later released, charged with "incitement to racial hatred" among other charges.
Cope adds that "other fines of 5,000 euros, and the ban on access to sports venues for a period of one year", were notified to the three individuals identified as the perpetrators of racist gestures directed against the Brazilian striker, during the match in Valencia played on May 21.
This Monday, we also learn that Spain and Brazil will play a friendly match in support of the fight against racism in March 2024, as announced by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF). The match will be organized in Spain, and if it turns out that La Roja has "official commitments" during this international window, "we will look for a new date in the calendar," detailed the RFEF.
