Captain of the French team that won the World Cup in Russian Federation in July, Hugo Lloris was condemned by a judge in court on Wednesday for failing a breath test, and was subsequently banned from driving for the next 20 months.

Lloris, who wore a dark suit with no tie, spoke only to confirm his personal details and to admit a charge of drink driving.

World Cup-winning captain Lloris had spent the evening with some of his worldwide team-mates but was found to have 80 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.

The court heard police in an unmarked vehicle spotted Lloris' Porsche Panamera driving at 15mph (24kph) in a 30mph (48kph) zone.

Lloris, who had been at a restaurant that night, was swerving towards parked cars and had to be helped out of his vehicle.

David Sonn, the lawyer representing the player in court, says "the spectacular fall from grace is not lost on Mr. Lloris".

Ultimately, the 31-year-old Tottenham star was hit with a $65,000 fine and his license will be suspended for 20 months.


He has also won more than 100 worldwide caps and lifted the World Cup eight weeks ago after France beat Croatia 4-2 in the final in Moscow.

"Drink-driving is completely unacceptable".

"Forty days later, he was arrested in central London", said the lawer.

A team spokesman said before the sentencing that Tottenham were treating the entire matter "extremely seriously". "He made a first mistake - he chose to drive".

Lloris, of East Finchley, spent a night in a cell at Charing Cross police station after failing a breath test in Marylebone.

Lloris signed for Spurs from Lyon in 2012 and has made 209 appearances in the Premier League, keeping 75 clean sheets.
