Aleksandr Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev, who played in the Russia team that was knocked out of Euro 2016 at the group stages, are fined after video footage appears to show them in a Monaco nightclub.

Two members of the Russian national team have been disciplined by their respective clubs after video footage emerged of them at a party in Monaco.

The footage appeared to show Aleksandr Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev in a nightclub, with waiters carrying dozens of bottles of champagne as the Russian national anthem played.

In response, Zenit St Petersburg's Kokorin and FC Krasnodar's Mamaev have been fined and demoted from the clubs' first teams.

Fans commenting online felt that the party was inappropriate after Russia's poor performance at Euro 2016, while the Kremlin said that President Vladimir Putin was aware of the incident.

Flavio Briatore, the owner of the nightclub where the two players were pictured, said that they had not ordered the champagne, were out with their wives and did not drink alcohol.

Leonid Slutsky's side - who will host the World Cup in two years' time - finished bottom of Group B after scoring just twice in their three games.
