FC Bayern star Lucas Hernandez will not have to go to prison for for violating a restraining order in 2017, a court statement said on Wednesday, according to Reuters.

A Madrid court has suspended the French international's six-month prison term for four years provided he doesn't commit a new offence during the period. He has also been handed a €96,000 fine.

Hernandez was given a restraining order after assaulting his then girlfriend in February 2017.

They married later that year, and the 25-year-old defender was arrested for disobeying the restraining order when they returned to Spain from their honeymoon.
