Football: 'Rolls' Reus in fresh trouble with German police

BERLIN (AFP) - Germany winger Marco Reus is being investigated by police for another motoring offence, despite being fined half a million euros last year for driving without a licence.

The 25-year-old was hit with a 540,000 euros (S$781,542) fine on December 18 when it emerged that he had driven since 2011 without a valid licence.

The fleet-footed Reus, who is nicknamed "Rolls Reus", had produced a fake Dutch driving licence when he was stopped for speeding in Dortmund in March 2014.

Now the Borussia Dortmund star, who missed last year's World Cup with an ankle injury on the eve of the tournament, is again in trouble with police for a fresh driving violation. The Germany star could be heavily fined and disqualified from applying for a drivers licence if it emerges again that he has been driving without a permit.

Earlier this year, Reus extended his Dortmund contract until 2019.
