Ballack handed driving ban
Madrid - Former Germany captain Michael Ballack has been banned from driving for 18 months and fined 6 750 euros ($8 600) after he was clocked speeding at 211 kilometres per hour on a Spanish highway in October.
The 36-year-old former Bayern Munich and Chelsea midfielder, who announced his retirement a couple of weeks before the incident, was driving his Audi Q7 at almost twice the speed limit of 120 kms per hour, according to the ruling by a court in Caceres published on Thursday.
Ballack, who was also ordered to pay the costs of the trial, has five days to lodge an appeal. ($1 = 0.7840 euros)
