Six-month driving ban for Tevez

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has been disqualified from driving for six months.

Tevez, 28, failed to understand the word "constabulary" on official letters from the police and subsequently has been disqualified from driving for six months and ordered to pay a total in fines and costs of £1,540.

The striker, who did not attend Wednesday's Manchester Magistrates' Court hearing in person, pleaded guilty to two counts of failing to furnish information which relate to incidents in which his car was caught speeding.

The court heard he received letters from the police in relation to the offences but he failed to respond because he did not recognise the word "constabulary".

Tevez also admitted not having a proper UK driving licence, but denied he was driving when his car was caught speeding.

The Argentine's solicitor, Gwyn Lewis, told the court: "He does understand the word 'police', but not more complicated words. The letters are written from Cheshire Constabulary and the word police doesn't appear on it anywhere."

When discussing the possibility of a fine, Mr Lewis told the bench: "He is a footballer and in that regard he is relatively well paid."
