Wonderful penalty (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

fine

This clue is a double definition.

'wonderful' is the first definition.

'penalty' is the second definition.
(a financial penalty)

(Other definitions for fine that I've seen before include "Money paid as penalty" , "Sunny -- penalty" , "Sheer or very good" , "An exquisite penalty?" , "Magnificent" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror and The Daily Express.
