World Cup-winning captain Hugo Lloris has admitted being more than twice over the drink-drive limit when he was stopped by police in central London.

The Tottenham and France goalkeeper was charged following a routine patrol stop in Gloucester Place, Marylebone, in the early hours of 24 August.

The 31-year-old, of East Finchley, pleaded guilty when he appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

He has been with Spurs since 2012 and is the team’s captain.

The court heard police in an unmarked car spotted Lloris’ Porsche Panamera driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone.

He veered his car “towards parked vehicles” before correcting himself, prosecutor Henry Fitch said.

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