Sunderland footballer Nicklas Bendtner has been banned from driving for 56 days and fined £660 after he was caught speeding in his Porsche.

The 23-year-old striker was clocked at 103mph on the Woolsington bypass, near Newcastle Airport, in December.

Newcastle magistrates were told he was on his way to the airport and was late for a flight.

The player, who is on loan from Arsenal, was not in court. He had earlier admitted speeding.

The Danish international striker was recorded doing 103.6mph for a distance of 0.137 miles by a police Vascar system installed in a patrol car.
