Tottenham keeper Lloris just a big swot!

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is a big swot!

The France skipper is a maths and science genius.

Lloris excelled in both subjects as a child and he revealed that, if he had not become a goalkeeper, he would have been a geek.

Lloris, who joined Spurs in a £12million deadline-day switch from Lyon said: "I've always been polite, decent and a good listener.

"I followed the rhythm of a normal child. I was hard working and rigorous at school. I did science A-Level and loved everything to do with science. Had my football career not taken off I would most certainly have continued my studies.

"That would have come naturally to me. Maybe I would have stayed in maths."

Perhaps he can offer lessons to Liverpool star Glen Johnson, who has just declared intentions to study mathematics!
