Drinking water after the time of sehri has elapsed

Q: I was travelling to Madinah in Ramadan and I reached Madinah at sehri time but when I woke up I did not know azaan was finished so I drank water and then I was told so do I have to keep the fast again?

Bismillaah

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
