Soccer-Gremio punished after coach’s daughter celebrates on pitch

Gremio have been ordered to play the second leg of their Brazilian Cup final away from home after the coach’s daughter celebrated the semi-final victory on the field with her father. Carolina Portaluppi, a 22-year old student and model who is a long-time Gremio fan, sat with her father Renato Gaucho on the bench for the final moments of the win over Cruzeiro and then joined in the celebrations on the pitch afterwards. Brazil’s Superior Court of Sporting Justice (STJD) also fined the Porto Alegre club 30,000 reais ($8,692) and threatened to take further action against the coach.
