Bayern Munich star Lucas Hernandez has been dealt a huge blow after his appeal to have his six-month jail term suspended failed.

At the time, a Madrid court ordered him not to go within 500 metres of Amelia for six months.

He was apprehended in June 2017 at the airport as he got off a flight after a honeymoon with Amelia in the United States.

It was the excursion that eventually earned the France international a six-month prison sentence having breached a restraining order in place.

Mirror reports the footie had lodged an appeal to have the sentence suspended but a court sitting in Madrid has rejected it.

According to the publication, Lucas has since been given 10 days to voluntarily enter prison.

It is believed the 25-year-old has been granted a leeway to choose the Spanish jail he wants to serve his sentence.

The development comes just three days after the former Atletico Madrid star won the UEFA Nations League with France following their victory over Spain in the final.
