    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Chile’s football association (ANFP) on Monday dismissed reports in social networks of an alleged sex party organised by the national team’s players taking part in Copa America, the South American football championship, in defiance of strict sanitary limits introduced due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    "The visit of a barber who violated the [The South American Football Confederation] CONMEBOL sanitary rules was the only disciplinary offence", Gianfranco Dazzarola, the ANFP spokesperson, said as quoted by Chilean radio channel BioBio.

    The CONMEBOL will impose a fine of $30,000 on Chile’s national team.

    On Sunday, media reported that Chilean football star Arturo Vidal violated the isolation rules as he was visited by a barber. Later the same day there was information circulating on social networks that Vidal and several players invited prostitutes to their hotel.
