Bayern Munich Boss Jailed Three Years

A German court has sentenced the president of European football champions Bayern Munich to three years and six months in jail for tax evasion.

Uli Hoeness admitted defrauding German tax authorities of millions of euros.

The former World Cup-winning German international footballer had kept the funds in a secret Swiss bank account.

His lawyer had argued he should escape punishment because he gave himself up. But judges ruled his confession fell short of full disclosure.
