Peterborough United's captain Grant McCann has been banned from driving for 18 months and fined £2,000, after pleading guilty to drink-driving.

McCann, 32, of Baston, Lincolnshire, was arrested on the A15 at Deeping Gate at 03:00 BST on 25 April.

He pleaded guilty at Peterborough Magistrates' Court earlier, to one count of driving while over the legal alcohol limit.

McCann was also ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

The footballer, who has played for the Posh since 2010, was also given the option of attending a drink-drive rehabilitation course to reduce the period of disqualification by four months.

Following his arrest in April, McCann had apologised to his fans, saying he was "extremely remorseful" and would accept his punishment.
