Lloris appeared in Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday morning and pleaded guilty to one count of drink driving.

But the 31-year-old's dream turned into a nightmare when his Porche was pulled over for a routine stop in central London at 2:20am on August 24.

The court heard police in an unmarked auto spotted Lloris' Porsche Panamera driving at 15mph (24kph) in a 30mph (48kph) zone.

His £115,000 Porsche was seen veering across the road, nearly hitting parked cars, and running a red light when it was stopped by police. Police discovered vomit in the auto and Lloris had to be helped out.

Lloris now faces the prospect of a lengthy ban and a significant fine based on his earnings at Tottenham. "This kind of unsafe behaviour is selfish, illegal and puts lives at risk". The legal limit is 35.

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

"On July 15 he was arguably the proudest man on the planet [after France's World Cup triumph]", Mr Sonn said. "The spectacular fall from grace is not lost on Mr. Lloris".

Lloris, of East Finchley, spent a night in a cell at Charing Cross police station after failing a breath test in Marylebone.

Lloris was seen exiting the court in a dark suit surrounded by a crowd of journalists.

While Lloris was in the running for the Golden Glove award in Russian Federation and considered one of the best keepers in the Premier League, Lollichon insists Areola is the better player and number one in France. "We expect the captain of Tottenham Hotspur and his national team to be setting a good example, not flouting the law in such a manner", Harris said in a statement.

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