Bayern Munich have fined Jerome Boateng for flouting lockdown rules set by the government in the wake of coronavirus outbreak.
The defender is understood to have left Munich city without the club's prior permission to check on his sick son.
SkySports reports Boateng left Bavaria which is currently on lockdown and was involved in a minor road accident on his way back on Tuesday, March 31.
It is believed the fullback was caught in a hailstorm and veered off the road in a freak incident that left his Mercedes damaged.
Bayern have now released a statement confirming Boateng has been fined for his behaviour.
"Bayern defender Jerome Boateng left Munich yesterday without permission from the club.
Boateng has transgressed the guidelines issued by the club by being too far away from his home," the club announced on Wednesday, April 1.
"FC Bayern believes the club has a responsibility to be a role model.
As a consequence of this transgression, the club has decided to impose a fine on Boateng.
The club will donate the money to Munich hospitals," the German giants added.
Proceeds from the fine are set to be channelled to local hospitals to help in the fight against the pandemic.
On his part, Boateng appeared to show little understanding of the fine, but resolved to take full responsibility for his actions.
