Fernandao's interesting celebration has been flagged up by the Turkish Football Federation.
Besiktas entertained Fenerbahce in the hotly-contested Istanbul derby on Sunday, and the hosts ran out 3-1 winners, picking up all three points in the Super Lig clash.
Besiktas had to come behind after the visitors opened the scoring courtesy of their Brazilian striker.
He tapped in from a few yards to give his side the lead, and wheeled away in celebration directing a gesture towards the home fans.
Fernandao marked his goal by thrusting his pelvis. Obviously.

Ridiculous if you ask me...

As mentioned, Besiktas fought back to eventually beat their neighbours.
But a few days removed from the feisty fixture, the TFF have slapped Fernandao with a sanction for his celebration.
He's been hit with a two-match suspension while fining him £11,500.

Beşiktaş fans should not have thrown objects at Fenerbahçe's players celebrating their goal. However, nor should those players have been celebrating in front of the home crowd like that, Fernandão should always have gotten booked for that. Really unnecessary to provoke like that.- Kaan Bayazit (@Razzerian) February 25, 2018
Fernandao got two match ban for his dancing Hulk celebration. Big miss for Fenerbahce but it is now Soldado's time to shine.- Jukkis Savolainen (@juginho1) February 28, 2018
Per reports from Daily Mail, four of the seven person panel thought his gesture was unacceptable which resulted in a ban and fine. So, he nearly got away with it.
Ultimately Besiktas had the last laugh after they gained bragging rights through the 3-1 victory.
Domagoj Vida leveled before the interval, while their Portuguese winger bagged a brace including a sublime goal which put his side in front.
