Former national soccer player Jerome Boateng has been sentenced to a fine of €1.8 million for intentional assault of his former partner.
A Munich district court sentenced the 2014 World Cup champion on Thursday to a fine totalling €1.8 million ($2.13 million).
The long time Bayern Munich star was found guilty of intentionally injuring and insulting his former partner, who is the mother of their twin daughters, during a Caribbean vacation three years ago.
His ex-girlfriend, named Sherin S., told the court he punched her, causing her to lose her breath during a heated argument.
The 33-year-old, who signed for French club Lyon last week after a decade at Bayern, had denied the allegations.
