Tottenham Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris Banned & Fined £50,000 For Drink-driving

Tottenham Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been banned from driving for 20 months and also fined £50,000 after pleading guilty to Drink-driving.

The French international was attended a hearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

Lloris was driving his 2018-plate Porsche Panamera along Gloucester Place, Marylebone, on August 24 when he was pulled over during a routine stop by police.

The court heard Lloris provided a sample containing 80 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath – the legal limit in England and Wales is 35 microgrammes.

He is also in line to be fined two weeks' wages worth £300,000 by his club.

Outlining the case, prosecutor Mr Fitch said: 'Shortly before 2.20am, officers were on patrol in an unmarked vehicle when their attention was drawn to a Porsche - it was moving strangely and doing 15mph in a 30mph zone.

'It veered a number of times towards parked vehicles, nearly clipping them, before correcting itself. It then went through a red light.'

When police stopped the vehicle, they discovered vomit and said Lloris had to be helped from the car.

Defence Counsel, David Sonn said Lloris’ “spectacular fall from grace was not lost” on the goalkeeper.

"On July 15 he was arguably the proudest man on the planet [after France’s World Cup triumph]," Mr Sonn said.

"Just 40 days later, he was arrested. He experienced the indignity of being handcuffed and put in a police station overnight.

"The spectacular fall from grace is not lost on Mr Lloris," he said.

Lloris signed for Tottenham in 2012 from Lyon, making 209 appearances in the Premier League and keeping 75 clean sheets.

He has also won more than 100 international caps and lifted the won the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
