A professional footballer has admitted speeding and using his mobile phone while driving a sports car.

Yann Songo'o pleaded guilty at Plymouth Magistrates Court to driving the Porsche Boxster while using a phone in Mannamead Road, Plymouth, in December.

He also admitted exceeding the 30mph limit in Peverell Park Road in January.

The Plymouth Argyle defender also faces a charge of driving while uninsured and another of driving without a licence. He has not yet entered pleas.

The case was adjourned to 21 August.

It had previously been adjourned at four separate hearings after the 25-year-old French-born player was unable to appear in court.
