A magistrate’s court in Madrid has ordered Atlético Madrid defender Lucas Hernández to carry out 31 days of community service over charges of domestic violence brought against the player and his ex-girlfriend following a fight between the pair on February 3. Amelia de la O was handed the same punishment.
They were both also given a restraining order preventing contact of any kind for a period of six months. Amelia de la O was also fined 180 euros for damages.
