Man City striker Tevez banned from driving

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has been banned from driving for six months after failing to respond to police letters about speeding, rep[orts BBC News. The 28 year old denies he was driving when his car was twice clocked speeding.

He said he did not recognise letters about the offences were from police as he did not recognise the word "constabulary".

The Argentinian admitted two offences of failing to give police information at Manchester Magistrates' Court.

Tevez, of Alderley Edge, Cheshire, was also ordered to pay fines and costs of £1,540.

His solicitor, Gwyn Lewis, told the court: "He does understand the word 'police', but not more complicated words.

"The letters are written from Cheshire Constabulary and the word 'police' doesn't appear on it anywhere."
