A breathalyser test on the scene found Lloris to have been over twice the drink drive limit. The France World Cup victor had spent the evening dining with his global teammates Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud, before attempting to drive while heavily intoxicated.

Asked whether Lloris, who was found to be twice the legal limit and had a passenger in the vehicle, would remain captain, Pochettino said: "Of course".

"He's the first that regrets everything, and all that happened yesterday is not good", he said. He said he was guilty and responsible. He is punishing himself. We need to try (to see) he understands he made a mistake. Then we're all humans and we can all make mistakes. Of course he's lucky there was no outcome - that is important - and it is a massive lesson for him, a life lesson. "He told me "boss it's a massive lesson for me, I made a mistake and need to pay" and now he's accepted (it) like a man that he is".

"In this situation he has spent a period where he was fighting with this situation, and now I think he's accepting that and he's going to move on and play his best, of course".

The World Cup-winning goalkeeper has been ruled out with a thigh injury, which he sustained against Manchester United in August. "It's not a moment to take risks now".

Spurs fans will hope that their number one returns to club duty ready to display the kind of form that has earned him a place among the top 'keepers in European football, to help the team keep pace with the front-runners in the league.

"(We are) disappointed because we are going to miss him for maybe this game and against Inter Milan in Champions League", said Pochettino.
