The punishment of 2018 FIFA World-Cup winning captain Hugo Lloris has been confirmed after he pleaded guilty of being double over the legal limit on his drunk driving charge.
Lloris, 31, pleaded guilty to one count of drink-driving at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday and admitted being more than twice the drink-drive limit when he was stopped in the early hours on August 24.
Lloris, who captained France to World Cup glory in Russia was driving his 2018-plate Porsche Panamera along Gloucester Place, Marylebone, when he was pulled over during a routine stop by police.
Detail from Hugo Lloris' drink-driving case: He was more than twice over the limit. His car veered toward parked vehicles and went through a red light. When police stopped the car, they discovered vomit and Lloris had to be helped from the car. #THFC

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.
According to Sky Sports, Prosecutor Henry Fitch said police in an unmarked car spotted Lloris' vehicle driving at 30km in a 60km zone.
He also veered his car 'towards parked vehicles', before correcting himself.
