Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has pleaded guilty to one charge of drink-driving at Westminster Magistrates’ Court this morning.
The World Cup winner was more the twice the legal limit when he was pulled over by police in Gloucester Place, Marylebone, during the early hours of Friday, August 24.
Lloris, who had been out in the capital with French teammates Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud, was pulled over at 2.20am and was found to have 80 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.
As Lloris was well over the legal limit of 35, he spent the night in custody at Charing Cross police station before being charged with drink driving.
Speaking after his arrest, Lloris said: “I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my team-mates, the manager and all of the supporters.
“Drink driving is completely unacceptable. I take full responsibility for my actions and it is not the example I wish to set.”
The 31-year-old is now set to face a hefty fine and a driving ban after admitting drink-driving.
