Cape Town - England allrounder Ben Stokes has landed himself in hot water after an altercation with a fan on day one of the fourth Test against the Proteas at the Wanderers.
The 28-year-old was out for 2 on Friday, caught in the slips by Rassie van der Dussen off the bowling of Anrich Nortje.
Just before he walked up the tunnel to head back to the dressing room, Stokes launched a verbal attack on a fan that was captured by the television cameras.
English broadcasters Sky have apologised for the incident.
It is not yet clear what the fan said or did to provoke Stokes, but his response suggests that he could now face disciplinary action.
"Come and say that to me outside the ground you f***ing four-eyed c***," Stokes said.
Proteas seamer Kagiso Rabada, meanwhile, was given an ICC demerit point for what was deemed an over-the-top celebration after dismissing England skipper Joe Root in the third Test in Port Elizabeth.
As a result, Rabada was suspended for the fourth Test in Johannesburg.
England ended the day on 192/4.
