Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been banned from driving for six months after receiving another six points on his licence.
The Spaniard has been banned from driving for six months after admitting speeding at 110mph in the 50mph zone. Chelsea star was ordered to pay £2,560, made up of a £1,000 fine, £625 court costs and a £100 victim surcharge.
Fabregas’ barrister Ben Waidhofer told the court:
“Certainly, he has learned his lesson today.”
“He (Fabregas) is genuinely remorseful.”
“He has learned his lesson and wishes to draw a line (under the matter).”
“This is not somebody who is repeatedly before the court for troubling speed cameras, running red lights, driving without insurance and driving without a licence.”
“That doesn’t arise in this case.”
“What I can tell you is that this is somebody who will not be doing it again.”
