The France global attended a hearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday after he was stopped by police on August 24.

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.

The 31-year-old was doing 15mph in a 30mph zone and had veered his auto "toward parked vehicles" before correcting himself.

He veered his auto "towards parked vehicles" before correcting himself and went through a red light, prosecutor Henry Fitch said. Police officers found vomit in the vehicle.

Lloris, who won the World Cup with France in July, was fined 50,000 pounds ($65,130.00) at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

A team spokesman said before the sentencing that Tottenham were treating the entire matter "extremely seriously". Not only were you putting your own life at risk but also that of your passenger. The legal limit in England and Wales is 35mg.

The court heard the goalkeeper had been dining in a restaurant and was showered with drinks from fellow diners. He had initially booked a taxi but it cancelled, prompting Lloris to drive - something described by Mr Sonn as "the first of a number of unwise decisions". "The spectacular fall from grace is not lost on Mr. Lloris".

David Sonn, defending, said the incident represented a "spectacular fall from grace" for the World Cup victor, who was not part of the Spurs squad for the loss at Watford earlier this month.

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

The footballer was flanked by two members of his entourage as he made his way from his vehicle into court.

"This kind of unsafe behaviour is selfish, illegal and puts lives at risk".
