The verdict fell for Jérôme Boateng. The German defender, who joined Olympique Lyonnais this summer, had to answer accusations of domestic violence by his former partner, Sherin Senler.

The 2014 world champion was convicted of assault and battery, and he was fined 1.8 million euros, the maximum penalty in such a case.

On the other hand, Boateng avoids prison, he who risked up to five years in prison.
