Tottenham star Jermain Defoe used phone while driving

  • Published

Tottenham and England striker Jermain Defoe has admitted using a hand-held mobile phone while driving in Essex.

A lawyer entered a guilty plea to Witham magistrates on Defoe's behalf as the 27-year-old from Cuffley in Hertfordshire was not present.

Defoe had previously entered a plea of not guilty to using the phone while at the wheel of a Range Rover in Loughton, Essex, in October 2009.

Sentencing was adjourned until 17 September.
