Tottenhan captain Hugo Lloris receives drink-driving fine

Tottenhan captain Hugo Lloris has received a fine after admitting to a charge of drink-driving.

The London Evening Standard says Lloris has been fined £50,000 for drunkenly driving home through central London from a night out with fellow French World Cup heroes.

The 31-year-old goalkeeper's £115,000 Porsche was seen veering across the road, almost hitting parked cars, and running a red light when it was stopped by police in central London.

Lloris had to be helped out of the driver's seat by a police officer, he was unsteady on his feet and slurring his words, and appeared to have vomited, Westminster magistrates court heard.

The shotstopper, who captained France to World Cup glory this summer, spent a night in the cells following his arrest, at around 2.20am in Gloucester Place, Marylebone on August 24, and today admitted making a "terrible error" as he pleaded guilty to a charge of drink driving.
