Arsenal footballer Alex Song's car was impounded by police after he was caught speeding in Hertfordshire.

The 23-year-old was pulled over for speeding in Radlett last Thursday but drove away from police after allegedly refusing to give his details.

Police pursued him and seized his car. The Cameroon international has been given seven days to produce his driving licence and insurance documents.

He was allegedly doing 50mph in 40mph and 30mph zones.

"The driver was unable to verify relevant documentation requested by police," a spokeswoman said.

"Following checks the vehicle was seized on suspicion of the driver not being insured to drive the vehicle.

"The driver has until midnight on Thursday to produce the relevant documentation after which police will consider whether any further action should be taken."

Arsenal had just beaten Barcelona in a Champions League match when Song, who was travelling in a Range Rover with his wife and another woman, was stopped.

The car has been impounded at Watford.
