Top French footballers Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema have been cleared by a Paris court on charges of soliciting an underage prostitute.

The French judge ruled there wasn't enough proof the men were aware that self-described escort Zahia Dehar, now 21, was a minor at the time.

Bayern Munich winger Ribery and Real Madrid forward Benzema, who didn't attend the trial, had faced up to three years in prison if found guilty.
