Being unpopular saves pundit Savage from driving ban!

Robbie Savage escaped a driving ban for speeding after his lawyer argued that he would get too much abuse if he had to take public transport, reports The Guardian. The former Wales midfielder turned TV pundit was rushing home from an Alan Shearer charity function to see his kids when he was clocked at 99mph in his luxury Bentley Mulsanne, a court heard.

Savage faced the possibility of a 28-day ban but instead was fined £600 and given six points on his licence by magistrates in Northallerton, North Yorkshire.
