Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has been handed a seven-game ban and fined £60,00 by the FA for his headbutt on Hull's David Meyler. The first three matches will see Pardew banned from the stadium. The next four will see him banned from the touchline.
In a statement, Newcastle say the club and Alan Pardew have accepted the decision and "now wish to draw a line under the matter".
Pardew said: "As I have made clear, I deeply regret the incident and again wholeheartedly apologise to all parties for my conduct, which I understand was not acceptable.
"I will accept the punishment handed down by the FA today. My focus now turns to preparing the team for this weekend's game against Fulham and finishing the season as strongly as possible."
