Retired World Cup goalie convicted of steroids useFormer Swedish goalkeeper Magnus Hedman was recently convicted of using anabolic steroids for non-medical purposes.

Last Tuesday, Helman was sentenced by the Solna district court to pay a fine of 5,400 Swedish Kronor (US$ 753).

In May, Hedman was tested for anabolic steroids after police found the illegal substance in his car. However, no charges were filed against him.

According to him, he was not aware of taking the substance, and suggested that it might have been included in the supplement he was taking.

According to Swedish rules, the use of anabolic – androgenic steroids for non-medical purposes is prohibited.

Hedman played with AIK from 1990 to 1997, Coventry from 1997 to 2992, Celtic from 2002 to 2005, and Chelsea from 2006 to 2007.

He played 58 games for the Sweden national football team including the 1994 and 2002 FIFA World Cups and two European Championship tournaments.

During an interview with the Swedish tabloid Expressen, Hedman was quoted saying, he had difficulty assessing his mistake since he was unaware of it himself.

The 36-year-old retired goalkeeper is recently divorced from his wife Magdalena Graaf, a former model, pop singer and Swedish author.
