Everton striker Wayne Rooney has been given a two-year driving ban and a 12-month community order after admitting a charge of drink-driving.
The former England captain pleaded guilty at Stockport Magistrates court on Monday.
Rooney, who reportedly expects to be fined two weeks’ wages by his club, must complete 100 hours of unpaid work as part of his community order.
The driving ban will be reduced by 24 weeks if he undergoes a specialist driving course by February 2, 2019.
The 31-year-old was arrested in the early hours of September 1 after being pulled over by police seven and a half miles from his home in Prestbury, Cheshire.
The former Manchester United and England captain was found to be over the prescribed limit and was released on bail after being charged.
