Reports in British media said he had breached his hotel ‘bubble’.

Players and match officials are staying in designated hotels where their movements are monitored and they are not allowed to mingle with those outside the bubble as part of the protocols.

The world governing body did not clarify if Gough would face any further sanction for the breach.
