UEFA have fined Portuguese club Porto £16,700 after their supporters racially abused Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli in February.

The European governing body has confirmed the punishment following a meeting of their control and disciplinary body which took place last week.

City lodged a complaint after Balotelli was subjected to monkey taunts during the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie at the Estadio do Dragao on February 16.
