West Ham fine McCarthy heavily for waistline

West Ham United have fined Benni McCarthy £80,000 for his bulging waistline.

The Daily Mail says the South Africa striker has returned from a specialist fitness clinic in Austria having shed two stone - and is now under the 85 kilograms (13st 4lbs) weight set by the medical staff to take him to the brink of a first team recall.

A friend said: "Benni regrets what has happened, but is keen to put it behind him now.

"He has paid the fines and now wants to repay the club by playing well and scoring goals."
