Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris & drink driving
Many Tottenham fans have been wondering whether Hugo Lloris’s form this season has been affected by his off-field problems.
Back in the summer, Lloris was arrested and charged for drink driving.
The incident happened on August 24, as Lloris was pulled over by police.
As confirmed by the police, Lloris was driving his 2018-plate Porsche Panamera along Gloucester Place, Marylebone.
Moreover, police found vomit in Lloris’s Porsche.

Giroud was taking part in a ‘yes or no’ feature when the following question was posed:
Would you have been tested positive (with the breathalyser) like Hugo Lloris?
The Chelsea striker answered ‘yes’.
It’s worth remembering that the Tottenham and French goalie spent seven hours in a prison cell after being caught by police.
Moreover, Lloris has been banned from driving for 20 months while he was also fined £50,000, plus costs and a victim surcharge.
