AEK Athens on Friday admonished a fan for breaking lockdown rules during the coronavirus outbreak before paying his fine and handing him a season ticket for the team's new 32 000-seat stadium.

The man, aged in his 60s, had taken a stroll near his home in the Athens suburb of Nea Philadelphia to see the construction work being done at the stadium.
