Tottenham Hotspur's French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris leaves after attending Westminster Magistrates Court in central London on September 12, 2018.

Lloris, who captained France to World Cup glory in Russian Federation was driving his 2018-plate Porsche Panamera along Gloucester Place, Marylebone, when he was pulled over during a routine stop by police.

Prosecutor Henry Fitch said police in an unmarked auto spotted Lloris' vehicle driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone.

He veered his auto "towards parked vehicles" before correcting himself and went through a red light, prosecutor Henry Fitch said.

When cops pulled him over, "Officers observed his speech was slurred, he was helped from the vehicle by an officer, he was unstable on his feet, and there was evidence of vomit at the scene".

As such, Lloris has been fined £50,000 (R980k) and banned from driving for 20 months since pleading guilty for the charges made against him.

She said: "This is a very serious offence, as you know". The legal limit is 35.

"On July 15, he was arguably the proudest man on the planet (having captained France to a World Cup triumph)", Sonn was quoted as saying by the BBC.

"Just 40 days later, he was arrested". I made a mistake.

Lloris, of East Finchley, spent a night in a cell at Charing Cross police station after failing a breath test in Marylebone.

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

The magistrate said the punishment acknowledged the seriousness of the offence and the aggravating circumstances of having a passenger in the vehicle, but also his admission at the earliest stage, including his statement released to the press shortly after his arrest.
