UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Paris St Germain President Nasser Al Khelaifi and sporting director Leonardo.

This followed Wednesday’s 3-1 Champions League defeat of PSG by Real Madrid.

The incident was recorded by a Real Madrid employee with a mobile phone.

“We confirm that a disciplinary case has been opened.
