Lionel Messi is sentenced to 21 months in jail and fined £1.7 million over tax charges


Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has been sentenced to 21 months in jail and fined £1.7million over tax charges. A Spanish court found the 29-year-old Argentina striker and his father Jorge guilty of three counts of tax fraud. In a statement, the court said their sentences can be appealed through the country's Supreme Court.  However, under Spanish law a prison sentence under two years can be served under probation, meaning Messi and his father are unlikely to go to prison.
