Cesc Fabregas Banned from Driving

Cesc Fabregas has been banned from driving after he was caught hitting 68mph in a 40mph zone in London.

The former Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder, who was disqualified for six months, told police "I wasn't going that fast," a court heard.

The 32-year-old, who now plays for Monaco, did not attend a short sentencing hearing at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court in London on Thursday, which proceeded in his absence.

The Spaniard, whose address was listed by the court as Belgravia, central London, pleaded guilty to a charge of speeding on July 11.

Prosecutor Luke Bowyer told the court that on December 4 last year police spotted the World Cup winner travelling in a grey Land Rover on a section of the A3 at the Tibbet's slip road near Wandsworth in south-west London.

Fabregas was clocked with a ProLaser 4 speed detection device which registered him travelling at 68mph in the 40mph limit area, the court was told.
