Lloris handed driving ban, fined after pleading guilty in court

France's World Cup-winning captain Hugo Lloris has been banned from driving for 20 months and fined after pleading guilty to a charge of drink driving, British media reported yesterday. Lloris has made 256 appearances with Tottenham since joining from the French club Lyon in 2012.

Hugo Lloris reportedly faces losing the Tottenham captaincy after full details of his drink-drive arrest were made public. Police discovered vomit in the vehicle and Lloris had to be helped out.

His lawyer said Lloris knew he should not have been driving and had called a cab after a night out. "He made a first mistake - he chose to drive".

Pochettino said: "We are always confident we can beat any team". "And of course now it is a massive lesson..." Drink driving is completely unacceptable.

"Only we need to try, that he understands, and how he understands that it was a mistake". But of course we're not God, that we can judge people. We can all make mistakes.

When sentencing, the magistrate said the fine represented the seriousness of the offence as well as the goalkeeper's financial means.

In the battery life department, the OnePlus 6T listing on Giztop suggests that it could be slightly better than its predecessor. The last apparent minority of users that'll never be OK with the removal of the jack is the in-car AUX audio user.

For Pochettino, Lloris's situation is an example of the many distractions that take managers' and players' attentions away from preparing for matches. "Like a man you need to recognise your mistake".

'I am learning a lot!' Pochettino joked.

Meanwhile, Spurs duo of Sissoko and Foyth is expected to return to training next week after a hamstring and thigh respectively.

"I'm not disappointed with him", he said.

"I am disappointed because we are going to miss him for this game and maybe the Champions League game against Inter Milan [on September 18]".
