He said: “I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my team-mates, the manager and all of the supporters.”Drink-driving is completely unacceptable, I take full responsibility for my actions and it is not the example I wish to set.”On Sunday, France beat the Netherlands in Paris in the team’s first home fixture since winning the World Cup in Moscow. Lloris missed the game with a thigh injury, but lifted the trophy in front of jubilant French fans as part of the ceremonial celebrations. Last month his club dealt with the matter internally, saying it would be taken “extremely seriously”, but hours after he was released from police custody, Lloris apologised in a public statement. Hugo Lloris arrives in court to plead guilty to drink drivingCredit:Tolga Akmen/AFP Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris has admitted being more than twice the drink-drive limit having been showered with drinks by diners at a London restaurant.The 31-year-old goalkeeper, of East Finchley, north London, was charged and bailed following a routine patrol stop in the early hours of August 24.He was fined £50,000 at Westminster Magistrates’ Court and banned from driving for 20 months after admitting drink driving.Prosecutor Henry Fitch said police in an unmarked car spotted Lloris’ vehicle driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone.He also ran a red light, veered his car “towards parked vehicles” before correcting himself and when police stopped the vehicle, they discovered vomit and said Lloris had to be helped from the car.There was an unnamed passenger in the car with him at the time. Defending, David Sonn described his client’s fall from grace after being arrested.He said: “On July 15 he was arguably the proudest man on the planet (having captained France to the World Cup victory). Just 40 days later, he was arrested.”He experienced the indignity of being handcuffed and put in a police station overnight. The spectacular fall from grace is not lost on Mr Lloris.” Outlining the case, prosecutor Mr Fitch said: “Shortly before 2.20am, officers were on patrol in an unmarked vehicle when their attention was drawn to a Porsche – it was moving strangely and doing 15mph in a 30mph zone.”It veered a number of times towards parked vehicles, nearly clipping them, before correcting itself. It then went through a red light.”Three days later, he captained Spurs to a 3-0 Premier League victory away at Manchester United, with the goalkeeper keeping a clean sheet. The 31-year-old Frenchman admitted a charge of drink driving at Westminster magistrates Court on Wednesday.The France international, who led his team to World Cup glory in Russia, was driving his 2018-plate Porsche Panamera along Gloucester Place, Marylebone, when he was pulled over during a routine stop by police.The court heard Lloris provided a sample containing 80 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath – the legal limit in England and Wales is 35 microgrammes.Lloris, wearing a dark suit and no tie, was flanked by two members of his entourage as he made his way from his vehicle into the court, confronted by dozens of photographers and video journalists.After the hearing, he left court, walking past photographers and reporters without making a statement, and got into a waiting black BMW. The court heard the goalkeeper had been dining in a restaurant and was showered with drinks from fellow diners. The case was due to be heard at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in central London on Tuesday, but was moved to Wednesday morning.Lloris has been with Tottenham since joining from Lyon in 2012, making 207 appearances in the Premier League and keeping 74 clean sheets.He has grown to be regarded as one of the world’s best goalkeepers during his time in England.Lloris has won more than 100 international caps and lifted the World Cup in July, after France beat Croatia 4-2 in the final.
