In his words, the shot stopper said: “I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my team-mates, the manager and all of the supporters.”

“I take full responsibility for my actions and it is not the example I wish to set.” He added.

According to the Metropolitan Police, Lloris has been released on bail and is due for an appearance at the Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, September 11.

Hugo Lloris joined Spurs from Nice in 2012 and has made 256 appearances since then.
