TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris has been charged with drink driving, Scotland Yard said.
The World Cup winner, 31, was charged following a routine patrol stop in the early hours of this morning.
The Frenchman was stopped in Gloucester Place, Marylebone, central London, the Met said.
Lloris, of East Finchley, north London, was bailed to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on September 11, the force said.
Lloris has been at the north London club since joining from Lyon in 2012, making 207 appearances in the Premier League and keeping 74 clean sheets.
He has grown to be regarded as one of the world’s best goalkeepers during his time in England.
Lloris has won more than 100 international caps and captained his country to World Cup glory in Russia last month, with France beating Croatia 4-2 in the final.
Tottenham have won both of their opening games in the league so far, with a 2-1 win at Newcastle and a 3-1 victory over Fulham. The club next plays Manchester United on Monday evening.
