Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris was arrested for drink driving.


Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris was arrested for drink driving in the early hours of Friday morning, according to multiple reports in England.

The France goalkeeper, who skippered his country to World Cup glory earlier this summer, was stopped by police in his car in central London at around 2.20am BST.

He failed a roadside breathalyser test and was taken to Charing Cross Police Station, where he spent around seven hours in custody before being charged and released on bail.

The 31-year-old has been ordered to appear at Westminster magistrates court on September 11.

The Metropolitan Police said: “A man has been charged following a routine patrol stop in Gloucester Place, W1.

“Hugo Lloris, 31, of East Finchley, was charged with drink driving on Friday, 24 August.

“He has been bailed to return to Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, 11 September.”

Spurs next play on Monday night, against top four rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford.

It is unclear whether Lloris will be part of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad, who are due to head north on Sunday.
