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

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". "Today he apologises to the court".

Lloris was one of the heroes of France's commanding march in Russian Federation to their second football World Cup in 20 years.

The Tottenham and France goalkeeper was charged following a routine patrol stop in Gloucester Place, Marylebone, in the early hours of 24 August. In England, the legal blood alcohol level is 0.8 g per liter of blood, compared to 0.5 g in France. "Drinking and driving is totally unacceptable, I assume full responsibility for my actions and this is not the example I wish to give".

According to Sky Sports, Prosecutor Henry Fitch said police in an unmarked auto spotted Lloris' vehicle driving at 30km in a 60km zone. Vomit was discovered within the auto, and Lloris had to be helped from the vehicle by officers.

She said: "This is a very serious offence, as you know". It is said that he had initially called for a taxi that night, only to drive himself instead when it got cancelled.

Tottenham have won three of their first four matches and are now fifth in the English Premier League.

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.
