In court he then admitted one charge of drink driving, after being pulled over in a routine patrol stop in the early hours of August 24.

His blood alcohol concentration was 80 micrograms per litre of air, more than twice the legal limit in the United Kingdom (35 micrograms per liter).

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

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

Vomit was found in the vehicle when Lloris was pulled over by the police.

France's World Cup winning captain is believed to have been fined £50,000 and issued with a 20-month driving ban.

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

According to reports Lloris had dined at the Bagatelle, a Franco-Mediterranean restaurant in the Mayfair district, along with two other players who play in London: another world champion, Olivier Giroud (Chelsea) and defender Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal). He had initially booked a taxi but it cancelled, prompting Lloris to drive - something described by Mr Sonn as "the first of a number of unwise decisions".

The attorney also said, "On July 15 he was arguably the proudest man on the planet".

He said a taxi which had booked cancelled so Lloris made "the first of a number of unwise decisions" and chose to drive home.

In a statement released on the day of his arrest, Spurs vowed to deal with Lloris internally and insisted the club "takes matters such as this extremely seriously". He experienced the indignity of being handcuffed and put in a police station overnight.

Lloris, who lives in East Finchley, signed for Spurs in 2012 and has made 209 appearances.

"This kind of unsafe behaviour is selfish, illegal and puts lives at risk".
