Berlin - German police have closed a second investigation into Marco Reus for driving without a licence, having already fined the Germany international 540 000 last year.

Due to insufficient evidence, prosecutors have ended their investigation into the Borussia Dortmund footballer, nicknamed 'Rolls Reus', who was suspected of continuing to have driven without a valid licence after initially being caught in 2014.

The 26-year-old was handed the hefty fine last December when it emerged he had been driving without a valid licence since 2011 after being stopped for speeding in March 2014 and handed over a fake Dutch driving licence to German police.

Reus was then immediately subjected to a second investigation after eye-witnesses claimed to have seen him continuing to drive, but those questioned were unable to give exact details of where and when, prosecutors said in a statement.

"I am delighted that this matter is finally over and I do not want to comment," Reus told German daily Bild, having pledged to get his licence in the January break.
