London, Jan 5 (ANI): Tottenham Hotspur ace striker Jermain Defoe has pleaded guilty to a speeding charge, and admitted driving at a speed of 45mph in a 30mph zone in Portsmouth, just months after being banned from the road for speeding offences.

He pleaded not guilty through his barrister to a second charge of failing to give his details.

Defoe, 27, who did not attend the hearing, was fined 400 pounds, ordered to pay 45 pounds costs, 15-pounds victim surcharge and given four points on his driving licence, The Sun reports.

Defoe was earlier this year disqualified from driving for six months for previous speeding offences but had the sentence overturned on appeal.

His previous driving raps were four points for speeding on October 4, 2008, six points for speeding on April 18, 2009, disqualified from driving for six months on July 14, 2008, and a further six-month ban on July 10, 2009. (ANI)
