Portugal midfielder Raphael Guerreiro was fined 90,000 euros ($105,331) by a court in Dortmund on Wednesday for failing to report a motoring accident.

The court confirmed to AFP subsidiary SID that the 23-year-old Borussia Dortmund midfielder was fined after driving his Porsche 911 Turbo into another vehicle at a junction in the city in November last year.

He then drove off after inspecting the damage and failed to report the incident as no one was hurt.

However, Guerreiro later admitted having been involved after being reported to the police.

He was initially fined 120,000 euros, reduced on appeal to 90,000, which will go to non-profit making organisations in Dortmund.

Guerreiro is now on probation and should he be found guilty of another offence within the next two years, he will be fined a further 90,000 euros for the original incident.
