England and Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho got fined by the German League for getting a haircut in his home, in breach of the country’s restrictions to prevent coronavirus spread.
The 20-year-old and his team-mate Manuel Akanji were fined after photographs emerged of them having a trim in their respective homes, with neither the players nor the hairdresser wearing any personal protective equipment ( PPE) in the pictures.

A statement from the German league (DFL) on Friday afternoon read: “The DFL has fined Manuel Akanji and Jadon Sancho.”
“The players from Borussia Dortmund had obviously violated general hygiene and infection protection standards at home hairdressing appointments and in particular the medical-organizational concept of the DFL task force.”
“There is no question that professional footballers also have to have their hair cut. However, this currently has to be done in accordance with the medical-organizational concept.”
