Lloris is banned from driving for 20 months

The 31-year-old, who admitted the charge at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, has been fined £50,000 and given a 20-month driving ban.

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.

Henry Fitch, prosecuting, said Lloris had been driving at 15 miles per hour in a 30mph zone and veered "towards parked vehicles" before adjusting his course, also going through a red light.

He nearly hit several parked cars and then ran a red light.

Inside, the details of the case were heard, where it was reported that Lloris had "vomited" and "had to be helped from his car" after being stopped by police.

She said: "This is a very serious offence, as you know".

A breathalyzer showed his blood alcohol was more than TWICE the legal limit.

"He had booked a taxi but unfortunately the taxi cancelled at the last minute", Sonn said.

He said a taxi which had booked cancelled so Lloris made "the first of a number of unwise decisions" and chose to drive home.

"Just 40 days later, he was arrested".

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

David Sonn, defending, said the "spectacular fall from grace" was not lost on Lloris.

Lloris, who made his way into the court building flanked by two members of his entourage, left the building without comment.

Lloris has made 256 appearances with Tottenham since joining from the French club Lyon in 2012.

"This kind of unsafe behaviour is selfish, illegal and puts lives at risk".
