Berlin: Borussia Dortmund's Germany goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller has been banned from driving for three months after being caught speeding at 171 kilometres (106 miles) per hour. A district court in Siegen, near Cologne, confirmed the 36-year-old, who has made five appearances for Germany and was part of the 2014 World Cup squad, was banned after being caught speeding in a 100km/h zone in August.

After being caught by a speed camera, Weidenfeller initially contested the ban, which would have meant a court appearance, but opted to accept the decision and has also been fined 600 euros ($639).
