Peter Sagan has issued an apology for a series of offences which saw him fined €5,000 by a judge in Monaco's crown court.

The fine came after Sagan resisted arrest and injured a police officer on April 25 in the Mediterranean Principality. Police stopped the Slovakian rider because he was with his brother out driving at 12:30am, with Monaco imposing a curfew from 10pm-6am at the time.
