Italian football club Lazio was fined €50,000 by the Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) on Thursday for an anti-Semitic incident which occurred last October.

The club’s hardcore “ultra” fans plastered stickers of holocaust victim Anne Frank wearing a Roma guernsey on the walls of the south end (Curva Sud) of Rome’s Stadio Olimpico, normally reserved for Roma fans, during a game against Cagliari.
