NYON, Switzerland (AP) — UEFA has ordered Atletico Madrid to close a section of its stadium as punishment for fans displaying a far-right banner at the Europa League final.

UEFA’s disciplinary panel found Atletico guilty of a charge of “racist behavior” at its 3-0 win against Marseille last month in Lyon, France.
