LLORIS CHARGED WITH DRINK-DRIVING

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris has been charged with drink-driving, Metropolitan Police has confirmed.

The World Cup winning goalkeeper is said to have failed a breathalyser test after he was pulled over at around 2.20am on Friday.

He was then taken to Charing Cross police station before being released on bail and will appear in court on September 11, two days after France face Netherlands in a friendly.

A statement from Metropolitan Police read: "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, August 24.

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

It is unknown if the France international will feature when Mauricio Pochettino's side take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday, as the news was revealed after the coach's press conference.

Lloris, who has made over 250 appearances for Spurs since joining from Lyon in 2012, has played in each of his side's opening Premier League games this season, starting with a 2-1 win at Newcastle before beating Fulham 3-1.
