EPL: Tottenham goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris banned for 20 months

Tottenham goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris has been banned from driving for 20 months.

He was also fined after pleading guilty to a charge of drink-driving,
British media reported on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old World Cup winning goalkeeper admitted being more than
twice above the drink-drive limit of 35 micrograms when he was stopped
by police in central London last month.

Lloris was fined 50,000 pounds ($65,130.00) at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

Prosecutor, Henry Fitch said police found Lloris in an unmarked car
driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone.

The court heard that the goalkeeper veered his car "towards parked
vehicles" before correcting himself and went through a red light.

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

"On July 15, he was arguably the proudest man on the planet (having
captained France to a World Cup triumph)," Sonn was quoted as saying
by the BBC.

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

Lloris apologised for the incident after he was charged by the
Metropolitan Police last month.
