The Borussia Dortmund striker was accused of hitting the youngster in the face, after the latter had allegedly abused him outside his home.

Borussia Dortmund had offered their support to the Pole, who denied the charges.


It is believed the teenager had abused Lewandowski over his move to Bayern Munich, and allegedly accused him of going for financial benefits.

At the time of the incident, Dortmund had made clear Lewandowski's side of the tale, with spokesman Sascha Fligge telling Sport1: "Several teenagers offended and berated Robert in the presence of his wife.

"According to his own account, he then stepped out of his car and put his hand on the teen’s shoulder and asked him why he was doing that."

Lewandowski confirmed his Bayern Munich move in early January, and he is set to link up with them until 2019 in July.
