Over-speeding: Chelsea Star Giroud Banned from Driving for 6 Months

20% Complete

Chelsea footballer Olivier Giroud has been banned from driving for six months after he was caught speeding in his Bentley for the fourth time in a year.

The striker, 32, was clocked doing 60mph on a 50mph stretch of the North Circular Road in Willesden, north west London, last May.

He was fined £600 and made to pay a victim surcharge of £60, as well as £85 in costs. His fine is 0.05 per cent of his £120,000 weekly wage.

Giroud did not attend the hearing, which had been due to be held in the afternoon but was moved to this morning at short notice.

The Frenchman admitted the offence in November, naming himself as the driver, the court previously heard.

Prosecutor Alison Larkin previously said he had accumulated nine points since last February – with three separate speeding offences in 2018.
