France's World Cup Keeper Hugo Lloris Avoids Jail Over Drink-Driving

Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray

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.

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.

He was fined £50,000, plus costs and a victim surcharge, and banned from driving for 20 months.

According to Sky Sports, Prosecutor Henry Fitch said police in an unmarked auto spotted Lloris' vehicle driving at 30km in a 60km zone.

The magistrate said the fine represented the seriousness of the offence as well as the goalkeeper's financial means.

He also veered his auto "towards parked vehicles" before correcting himself. The legal limit in England and Wales is 35mg.

Trump to mark 17 years since 9/11 at Pennsylvania memorial
It features 40 wind chimes, one for each of the flight's 40 passengers and crew members who died on september 11 , 2001. The 9/11 commemorations are by now familiar rituals, centered on reading the names of the dead.

Lloris is the French national team captain but Lollichon, a fellow Frenchman, has called the Spurs shot-stopper "overrated".

He helped France to victory in the World Cup in the summer, as they beat Croatia 4-2 in the final.

"Just 40 days later, he was arrested".

David Sonn, defending, said the incident represented a "spectacular fall from grace" for the World Cup victor, who was not part of the Spurs squad for the loss at Watford earlier this month. He experienced the indignity of being handcuffed and put in a police station overnight.

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

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