The Confederation of African Football, CAF, has fined Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang $10,000 over a post he made on social media.
CAF said the post had tarnished its honour and image.
Aubameyang posted on the social media after Gabon spent the night on an airport floor ahead of an African Cup of Nations qualifier in November.
The player and his team mates were stuck at the airport in the Gambia after arriving for a qualifying game.
They were not allowed to leave as officials argued over COVID-19 testing.
CAF’s disciplinary committee said the content was offensive and degrading.
