Jamie Vardy will miss Leicester's visit to Manchester United on Sunday after being handed an additional one-match ban after accepting an FA charge of improper conduct.
Vardy was sent off early on the second half of the Foxes' 2-2 draw with West Ham earlier this month, but was charged with improper conduct for his reaction to the decision.
The England international reacted angrily to referee Jonathan Moss's decision, shouting in his face and pointing furiously at the official after receiving a second yellow card for diving following a tangle with Angelo Ogbonna.
He requested a personal hearing in the hope of avoiding an additional ban, but an Independent Regulatory Commission found him guilty. As well as the one-match ban, Vardy has been fined £10,000 and warned as to his future conduct.
"Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Jamie Vardy has been given a one-match suspension with immediate effect, fined £10,000 and warned as to his future conduct," a statement from the FA read.
"The Leicester City forward had accepted an FA charge of improper conduct following his second half dismissal against West Ham United on Sunday 17 April 2016.
"Meanwhile, the club has been fined £20,000 after accepting an FA charge of failing to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.
"The standard penalty, which the club accepted, followed an 83rd minute incident during the same fixture."
The decision means Vardy will miss Sunday's trip to Old Trafford where victory would see Leicester crowned Premier League champions.
