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.

But Lloris's dream turned into a nightmare when his Porsche was pulled over for a routine stop in central London at 2:20am on August 24.

"Prosecutor Henry Fitch said later that night police in an unmarked auto spotted Lloris' vehicle driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone", a report from the Daily Mail states. Police discovered vomit in the auto and Lloris had to be helped out.

Lloris, meanwhile, captained France to World Cup glory during the summer, with Les Bleus putting on a string of remarkable performances that culminated in an impressive 4-2 victory over a strong Croatia side in the tournaments final. He experienced the indignity of being handcuffed and put in a police station overnight.

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

Walking his dog along empty streets, Belli said he's well stocked with food and water. "It's not just the coast", Graham said. At 8 a.m. (1200 GMT) on Wednesday the storm was located about 530 miles (855 km) southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina.

The keeper issued a statement after his arrest, featuring a fulsome apology.

"I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my team-mates, the manager and all of the supporters", he said.

"Drink-driving is completely unacceptable".

A team spokesman said before the sentencing that Tottenham were treating the entire matter "extremely seriously".

Earlier this week, Lloris told RMC: "Just like every man, I have a private life". "He made a first mistake - he chose to drive". "I always want to go out onto the field to have fun and keep improving myself". The Spaniard scored 323 goals in 741 appearances for the current Champions League holders and recorded 44 strikes in 102 appearances for La Roja.
