A German court has sentenced Bayern Munich's president Uli Hoeness to three and half years in jail for tax evasion.
Prosecutors had argued that Hoeness's voluntary disclosure - that he had failed to pay taxes - was incomplete and thus did not meet a vital requirement needed for amnesty under German tax laws designed to encourage tax evaders to come clean.
Hoeness has admitted he evaded 27.2 million euros in taxes on income earned in secret Swiss bank accounts.
The 62-year-old football manager was hoping for leniency in one of the most closely watched tax evasion cases in German history.

Drogba added: "It has been a very difficult decision for me to make and I am very proud of what we have achieved but the time is right for a new challenge for me."
The 34-year-old scored the winning penalty as Chelsea were crowned Champions of Europe on Saturday night.
