It was revealed on Tuesday that the 27-year-old had been found guilty of all charges which included aggravated assault, resisting arrest and repeated attempts of bribery.

However, the former Leicester City man took to Instagram later that evening to share a quote from Buddha, which read: "Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth."

It was also stated that he would be handed a suspended jail sentence of 21 months and 10 days, according to reports.

But when the results of his trial became clear, Maguire was quickly withdrawn from the squad for Nations League ties with Iceland and Denmark.

Southgate said in a statement: "In light of this evening's developments, I can confirm I have withdrawn Harry Maguire from the England squad for the matches against Iceland and Denmark.

"As I said earlier today, I reserved the right to review the situation. Having spoken to Manchester United and the player, I have made this decision in the best interests of all parties and with consideration of the impact on our preparations for next week."

According to Sky Sports, the court had been asked to postpone the proceedings over the incident involving Maguire.

Yoannis Paradissis, who assisted the prosecution, told Sky Sports that the victims of the incident are waiting to receive an apology from the defendants.

"When you're a sportsman and a role model you have to accept what you've done and say sorry," he said.

"Until today, we haven't had that -- they have said it's all the fault of the policeman.

"This was not accepted by the court. The victims and the policeman were assaulted. The only thing they want is an apology."

The lawyer added that the victims were "totally appalled" with the behaviour of Maguire and his co-defendants.

Maguire's lawyer, Alexis Anagnostakis, claimed earlier today that her client's altercation with Greek authorities came after two Albanian men had 'injected his sister with a substance.'
