Harry Maguire has been found guilty of repeated bodily harm, attempted bribery, violence against public employees and insult at a trial on the Greek island of Syros.
The Manchester United captain has been given a suspended sentence of 21 months and 10 days in prison after being arrested while holidaying in Mykonos.
A lawyer working with the prosecution tells @marthakelner the behaviour of Harry Maguire and his co-defendants has been "totally unsportsmanlike" saying the prosecution is "appalled" an apology has not been given to the police.

Despite not being in attendance at court, he has reportedly instructed his legal team “to inform the courts we will be appealing”.
These were the best tweets and jokes as Harry Maguire is found guilty of all charges at the trial in Greece:
But what about his love of ancient Greek culture. Does that not help?

The most shocking thing in the Maguire case is the alleged £765 for 3 bottles of Jack Daniels. If you’re going to overpay for whiskey at least make it a decent one 🙁
