Bayern Munich fined midfielder Corentin Tolisso an unspecified amount and dropped him from Saturday's Bundesliga game against Hoffenheim after the French world champion broke the league's health measures by getting a tattoo.

The 26-year-old had briefly posted on social media a video of him getting a tattoo, that angered club officials.

"We are happy that despite the current situation Bundesliga matches can be played. A condition for that is that players, coaches and staff stick to the health rules set out," Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in a statement.
