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.
