BERLIN (AFP) - A German Football Association (DFB) anti-doping doctor has resigned after a picture of Schalke's Kevin-Prince Boateng drinking beer and smoking while being tested for drugs appeared in a newspaper.

He was injured in Wednesday's 6-1 last 16, first-leg drubbing by Real Madrid - the heaviest home defeat suffered by a German team in Champions League history.

It capped an unfortunate few days for the Ghana midfielder after the picture appeared in German daily Bild earlier this week.

A Bild reader had submitted the shot showing Boateng, still in his Schalke kit, blowing cigarette smoke and holding a half-drunk bottle of beer.
