John Galliano has been found guilty of anti-semitic behaviour by a French court and fined 2,000 euros. The verdict was revealed earlier this afternoon.

According to the BBC, the disgraced designer has also been issued a suspended fine of a further 4,000 euros.

Galliano apologised for his actions during the early stages of the trial back in June, after a video showing the alleged racist incident was shown to the court.

"I can see this whole affair has caused a lot of upset and sadness," he said. "I apologise because the man you see up there (in the video) is not John Galliano."

The British-born designer was arrested back in February following an incident in a bar in Paris, in which he reportedly subjected a couple to a tirade of racist remarks.

He was subsequently fired from both Dior and his own-name fashion house.
