Bayern Munich's Franck Ribery has reportedly been fined 50,000 euros ($66,000) for a dressing room bust-up with Arjen Robben at half-time in the Champions League win over Real Madrid, according to Bild.

The German daily reports the Frenchman lashed out at Robben after an argument over a first-half free-kick in the 2-1 semi-final first-leg win over Real on Tuesday at Munich’s Allianz Arena.

Ribery is reported to have struck Robben during the dressing-room altercation and the Dutch winger’s face was clearly marked when he later gave a post-match interview.
