Anyone found guilty of diving or feigning injury will be hit with an immediate two-match suspension.

FA bosses have defined the new offence for which players will be punished as “successful deception of a match official”.
The panel will only review the incidents that result in someone winning a penalty or lead to an opponent being sent off.
It’s a groundbreaking move and the new laws have been given approval from the Premier League, Football League, the League Managers Association and the PFA.
The three-man panel will be made up of one ex-referee, one ex-manager and one former player – and they must unanimously agree of the simulation.
Starsport understands the FA consulted a host of managers about introducing the new laws.
Earlier this season Burnley boss Sean Dyche said he thought diving would be eradicated from football within six months if retrospective bans were introduced.
There have been a number of notable cases this season, with England pair Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford among those to come under the microscope.
The system has been in place in Scottish football since 2011.
The FA, meanwhile, has also announced it has passed reforms it proposed in March following criticism from the Government about how it was being run.
