Former Germany International and Olympique Lyonnais defender Jerome Boateng was found guilty of premeditated bodily harm on his former partner, a spokesperson for a court in Munich said.

The 2014 World Cup winner, who was fined 1.8 million euros ($2.13 million), was accused of injuring his ex-girlfriend in a fight during a vacation in 2018.

The mother of his twin daughters accused Boateng of throwing a lamp at her which missed and then throwing a small cooling box which injured her arm before hitting her and pulling her hair.
