Earlier on Wednesday, it was reported that the 20-year-old man had been handed a fine for "violating the rules of behavior during the hosting of official sporting events."

"The UK citizen Rufus Edward Hall has paid the imposed fine and brought the receipt," a court spokesperson said.

The incident took place before Wednesday morning's World Cup round of 16 match between Colombia and England, which was played at the Spartak Stadium and ended with England winning on penalties.
