Spanish Prosecutors have agreed to quash Lionel Messi’s 21-month prison sentence.

According to report in the Spanish media, the prosecutors have agreed to swap the prison sentence for a fine of €255,000.

The original punishment was for crimes relating to tax evasion.

The prosecutors had alleged that the two used tax havens in Belize and Uruguay to conceal earnings from image rights.
