Roma president fined for jumping into fountain

Roma president James Pallotta agreed to pay a fine and apologised to Mayor Virginia Raggi on Wednesday after jumping into a downtown fountain to celebrate the win over Barcelona.



Surrounded by a crowd of flag-waving Roma fans, Pallotta performed a backward somersault into a fountain in the Piazza del Popolo.

Pallotta was ecstatic after Roma surprised Barcelona with a 3-0 win on Tuesday to overturn a three-goal first-leg deficit in the Champions League quarterfinals.

Pallotta, a Boston executive who was part of the four-man American team that purchased Roma in 2011, is also a minority owner of the Boston Celtics.

City ordinances call for a €500 fine for wading into historic fountains.
