CONMEBOL announced a two-month ban for Jesus on Wednesday, a statement saying "the player is suspended to play official and friendly matches with his national team in that period of time".

Jesus was also fined $30,000 and is set to miss friendlies against Colombia and Peru next month, but has seven days to appeal the sanctions.

Meanwhile, Copa host and champion Brazil was fined $15,000 and warned for the behaviour of its fans.

It has been a busy period post-Copa for CONMEBOL, with Argentina star Lionel Messi and Chile's Gary Medel also receiving bans and fines.
