The punishment of 2018 FIFA World-Cup winning captain Hugo Lloris has been confirmed after he pleaded guilty of being double over the legal limit on his drunk driving charge.

Lloris, 31, who is captain of both Spurs and the French national team, admitted to drink driving at Westminster magistrates' court this morning.

He provided a sample containing 80 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, with the legal limit in England and Wales being 35 microgrammes.

The incident occured when the Spurs stopper was pulled over for a routine check at 2.20am in Gloucester Park, after being spotted "veering his auto towards parked vehicles" and driving 15mph in a 30mph zone.

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.

Chelsea's goalkeeping coach Christophe Lollichon has openly criticised Tottenham Hotspur star Hugo Lloris in a public interview.

Defending, David Sonn said Lloris had been dining in a restaurant where he was showered with drinks.
