Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema have been acquitted on charges of solicitation of an underage prostitute.

The France internationals had been accused of paying Zahia Dehar for sex in 2009, before her 16th birthday.

Dehar had claimed that neither player knew her real age at the time of the incident.
