French football international Franck Ribery has been placed under formal judicial investigation for soliciting sex with an under-age prostitute.

The Bayern Munich winger has been questioned for hours at the Paris vice squad headquarters as has fellow French soccer star Karim Benzema.

French media have suggested the players were clients of a nightclub in the upmarket Champs-Elysees district, allegedly frequented by escorts.
