Podolski fined for on-pitch row with Ballack

Germany international Lukas Podolski has voluntarily paid a fine of 5,000 euros to charity for clashing with captain Michael Ballack during Wednesday's 2-0 win over Wales in Cardiff.

The two players came together in the 67th minute with the Bayern Munich striker slapping the Chelsea midfielder on the face after taking exception to his giving of orders.

Both made peace after the game, but Podolski has decided to make a charitable gesture to further apologise for his conduct and the German Football Association (DFB), who had already ruled out taking any disciplinary action, have commended him.
