The Metropolitan Police confirmed the goalkeeper was charged following a routine patrol stop in central London on Friday.

"I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my team-mates, the manager and all of the supporters," Lloris said.

"Drink-driving is completely unacceptable, I take full responsibility for my actions and it is not the example I wish to set."

Tottenham indicated Lloris could face a club punishment for his actions.

"The club takes matters such as this extremely seriously and it will be dealt with internally," a Tottenham statement read.

Lloris has started each of Tottenham's Premier League games in the 2018-19 season, with his side next in action on Monday away to Manchester United.
