Both were called to the first hearing on Tuesday in London.

The two player cats were taken into the care of the RSPCA Animal Welfare Association, which initiated the trial proceedings of Kurt and Yuan Zuma under the Animal Welfare Act.

The London club did not suspend its player, but rather made him play a match on the evening of the revelation of the case, which sparked a huge outcry.

The player was finally fined 300,000 euros, the highest possible amount, imposed by his club, and sports equipment supplier Adidas severed a contract with the player.

West Ham confirmed that, according to the information available to the club, the cats “have not suffered any physical injury”.

The club then confirmed that the fine imposed on the player had been donated to animal protection societies.
