The fan wrote 'England' on the statue before this morning's World Cup round of 16 clash between the Three Lions and Colombia, which was played at the arena.

Moscow's Department of Internal Affairs said the 20-year-old man would face administrative penalties for "violating the rules of behavior during the hosting of official sporting events."

"He has been imposed an administrative fine of 3,000 rubles," the source said adding that the fan had apologised for his actions.

The writing was washed off after the game.
