World Cup final pitch invader given 15-day jail term

MOSCOW, July 16 (Reuters) - A Moscow court on Monday handed down a 15-day jail sentence to one of four people who interrupted Sunday’s World Cup final between France and Croatia when they ran onto the pitch wearing fake police uniforms.

The judge also banned the pitch invader, Veronika Nikulshina, from attending sports events for three years.

Three others are due to be sentenced later on Monday. (Reporting by Gabrielle Tétrault-Farber Writing by Christian Lowe; editing by John Stonestreet)
