West Ham United defender Kurt Zouma has pleaded guilty to kicking and slapping a cat after a video emerged of the incident in February.
The 27-year-old admitted two offences under the Animal Welfare Act at a hearing at Thames Magistrates’ Court.
Zouma’s brother Yoan, who plays for Dagenham and Redbridge, pleaded guilty to one offence following an RSPCA investigation.
Yoan, 24, filmed the incident, which was posted on social media.
