Messi prison sentence revoked?

Barcelona’s Lionel Messi should have his 21-month prison sentence revoked after being offered to pay a fine of €252,000 instead.

Messi and father Jorge were found guilty of committing tax fraud and given a suspended sentence of 21 months last year.

However, a report released by Barcelona Provincial Court on Friday confirmed the Argentine had his punishment downgraded, while his father can similarly pay €180,000 to have his 15-month sentence quashed.

However, AS notes that even if he settles the fine, the No 10 will keep his criminal record.
