Tottenham goalkeeper admits drunk-driving
World Cup-winning captain Hugo Lloris has admitted being more than twice the drink-drive limit when he was stopped by police in central London.
The Tottenham and France goalkeeper was charged following a routine patrol stop in Gloucester Place, Marylebone, in the early hours of 24 August.
The 31-year-old, of East Finchley, pleaded guilty when he appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
He was fined £50,000 and banned from driving for 20 months.
The court heard police in an unmarked car spotted Lloris’ Porsche Panamera driving at 15mph (24kph) in a 30mph (48kph) zone.
He veered his car “towards parked vehicles” before correcting himself and went through a red light, prosecutor Henry Fitch said.
When officers stopped the vehicle, they found vomit and said Lloris had to be helped from the car.
