Borussia Dortmund has been fined for breaking German soccer’s social distancing rules after players celebrated a win over a fierce rival inside the team bus.
Videos published on social media following the 4-0 win over Schalke on Saturday showed players celebrating together as the bus passes a crowd of Dortmund fans cheering on the street.
Dortmund was fined on Monday because “players celebrated the win in the derby in the team bus without distancing and without covering the mouth and nose”, the Bundesliga said.
The league didn’t say how large the fine was. Dortmund can file an appeal, the league added.
Dortmund and Schalke have a longstanding rivalry.
The win for Dortmund also marked a turnaround after one win from its previous six league games. Dortmund is sixth in the Bundesliga.
