Tottenham and England footballer Ledley King has been told by magistrates he faces a driving ban for speeding.

King, 30, of Cuffley, Hertfordshire, admitted breaking a 70mph limit as he drove a Mercedes CL on the A14 near Newmarket in Suffolk in June.

King had argued he had been travelling at no more than 95mph, but Sudbury magistrates ruled the police speed gun reading of 105mph was accurate.

Sentencing of the central defender was adjourned until 15 December.

Magistrates said they were considering disqualification and that King should appear at the sentencing hearing.

King also admitted driving a car with tinted windows which allowed an "insufficient transmission of light".
