Stallone has been charged with importing banned substances into Australia in February this year during a tour to promote his film Rocky Balboa.

A Customs search of his luggage at the start of his three-day visit to Sydney had revealed 48 vials of the banned human growth hormone product, Jintropin.

Stallone's medical condition was not revealed in court, but Agius questioned whether the condition could be treated by Jintropin.

The magistrate was told Jintropin was a generic human hormone growth banned from sale in the US, and while Stallone had a US prescription for the testosterone, it is banned in Australia.

Stallone has already pleaded guilty. In a letter to the court, he said, "I made a terrible mistake, not because I was attempting to deceive anyone but I was simply ignorant to your official rules," and claimed that the drugs had been prescribed to him for an unspecified medical condition.

The website of Australias Sydney Morning Herald carries the full text of Stallones apology.

I had in my luggage a significant quantit
