World Cup-winning goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was "lucky" not to knock down pedestrians or damage cars when driving "erratically" at the end of an evening in which he was "showered with drinks" at a restaurant, a court has heard.

The Tottenham goalkeeper admitted the charge at Westminster Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

Lloris, who captained France to World Cup glory in the summer, was driving his 2018-plate Porsche Panamera along Gloucester Place, Marylebone, when he was pulled over during a routine stop by police.

According to official court papers, the France star was stopped with 80 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath - more than double the legal limit of 35mg.

Fitch also told the court that police saw Lloris driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone, and veering towards parked cars before correcting himself.

They had to help the goalkeeper from his vehicle.

As well as being banned for 20 months he was fined £50,000.

‘Extremely dangerous’ Hurricane Florence is now packing winds of 220 km/h
The storm is expected to make landfall in North and SC in the next few days, with winds of up to 220 kilometres an hour. While it may or may not officially become a Category 5 storm, it will still be a major Hurricane at landfall .

"Forty days later, he was arrested in central London", said the lawer.

"I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my team-mates, the manager and all of the supporters".

Police said Lloris almost hit parked cars and went through a red light.

"Drink-driving is completely unacceptable".

Lloris missed Tottenham's 2-1 defeat to Watford with the injury, as well as France's recent worldwide games against Germany and the Netherlands and he says he's not sure if he'll be fit for the match at Wembley at lunchtime on Saturday. "But, as Mr Lloris pointed out to me, it is when you're drunk you're likely to make mistakes - that was to drive home".

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