Morocco have been banned from the next two African Nations Cups and fined US dollars one million (£656,000) for pulling out of hosting this year’s competition, the Confederation of African Football has announced.

CAF also ordered the Moroccan Football Federation to pay compensation of eight million euros (£5.9m) for losses sustained by CAF, its stakeholders and partners as a result of its decision not to host the tournament.

Morocco pulled out of hosting the tournament due to the Ebola epidemic , with Equatorial Guinea stepping in at short notice to stage it.
