The FA have announced they will punish players retrospectively for diving from next season.
A decision was made earlier today which means Premier League players can now face a two-match ban for simulation.
The statement from football’s governing body reads: “Where there is clear and overwhelming evidence to suggest a match official has been deceived by an act of simulation, and as a direct result, the offending player’s team has been awarded a penalty and/or an opposing player has been dismissed, The FA will be able to act retrospectively under its Fast Track system.”
A three-man panel of experts will meet each Monday to sift through the serial cheats in the Premier League.
Simulation is back on the agenda after an outrageous weekend of diving at the end of April.
Manchester United ace Marcus Rashford, City’s Leroy Sane and Spurs striker Harry Kane were all accused of diving to win penalties.
Scottish football took on the system at the start of the season, and Hearts winger Jamie Walker was the first penalised when he got a two-match ban for diving against Celtic.
The charge, simulation causing a match official to make an incorrect decision, is expected to be adopted in England from the start of next season.
